Maria Yolanda's story

Maria is a young woman who is 24 years old. She is unmarried and has a small son. She lives in Chincha with her parents and son. For more than 10 months, she has worked as a seamstress in a textile factory, performing her job responsibility, efficiently and resolutely and obtaining favorable results every day for her employers.

Being a single mother, she had to struggle to help her son get ahead. She succeeded, with a great deal of effort, and is giving her small one a better future.

Maria is grateful to Kiva lenders because with the help provided she will be able to remodel her dwelling by plastering and painting the walls, setting up a security system, installing a floor and buying a bedroom set to furnish her house. With these tasks out of the way, in the future she will be able to fulfill her great dream, that of having her house completely remodeled.
