Andrea Fiorella's story

Andrea lives in the crowded district of Agustino and very early every day she travels two hours to her center of study. She lives with her mother and her siblings. She comes from a home of separated parents and her father does not contribute to her upkeep. Her mother works as an attendant at a public bath and is the only person sustaining the family. She needs to pay for the school and studies of her other two brothers so there is not enough money to pay for Andrea's textile sewing course. If she cannot count on the support of the lenders from Kiva she will have to abandon her studies and start to work. Andrea wants the support so that she has more accessible payments which will allow her to pay month by month. This would make it possible for her to study. She promises to pay promptly and without getting behind with her loan. She would like to thank the valuable support given by the lenders at Kiva and wants to tell them that what they are doing for these young people is a great work of love for others for which God will shower with blessings.
