Possibably a Dutch film

I'm trying to get the correct name and country of origin on this film I saw sometime in the 1980's. The Netherlands/Holland sticks in my mind as to where it took place...around the turn of the century as to when it took place...the name of the film which is also the name of the lead character I'm going to have to spell phonetically - sounds like "Keejee Tippel". It's the story of a poor country girl who goes to the big city to live on her own. One of the jobs she gets has her washing clothes or something by hand in scalding hot water containing a strong soap or whatever that causes her hands to bleed. Eventually, she meets a rich and handsome and nice young man...and the story ends happily with them getting married. Does this ring a bell with anyone?

I found it, thanks to Blockbuster and Foreignfilms: "Keetje Tippel", 1975, Dutch, and directed by Paul Verhoeven.
