Rosa Maria's story

Rosa lives in Lima with her parents. They are elderly and hardly earn enough to cover food for the household. Rosa’s older siblings help financially but as they have families of their own, the money they can contribute is very small. Rosa will have to stop her studies and get a job if she doesn’t get help from Kiva lenders.

She is currently studying the third academic semester specializing in industrial administration. Her wish is to finish as soon as possible so she can find work in a company that values her hard work and dedication. Then she will be able to help her parents with household expenses.

For this reason Rosa wishes to thank Kiva lenders for all the help they bring to her and many young people who wish to get ahead. She believes that in these modern times women as well as men have the right to a good education. She believes that in the near future she will have an equal education as will people in other latin american countries.
