A loan of $375 helped for the beginning of a home.


Pelagia Aurelia's story

Pelagia lives in the district of Santiago, and is a woman with great desire to get ahead. Her dream is to give her son a higher quality of life. That's why she works very hard in her job as a farm worker, since it's the only source of income she has to pay household expenses. Pelagia is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to the help they provided to her, she'll be able to undertake the beginning of purchasing a home. That would give her a place to live of her own, since she currently lives in a house with relatives.
