Junior Augusto
Junior August is a very enterprising, hardworking and charismatic young man. He lives in Pisco, a place greatly affected by the 2007 earthquake that left the city in ruins, killed many people and left many others injured and affected to the extent that even now the city has not been able to fully recover from this natural disaster.

Junior is married and his wife helps him greatly. Together they have a small daughter whom he adores and who is the driving force of his life. It is for her that he works so hard: to give her the best, so that she lacks nothing. By getting ahead, he wants to make her proud of him.

At 21, Junior has his own business selling wine. He has been working in the business for 9 years; 9 years of great effort to keep his business afloat.

Junior works very hard, around 8 hours a day, although it may be a little more. He attends an average of 50 customers a day and can sell up to 11 cases of wine weekly. He believes that his business is doing well because he is dedicated to his work, he treats his customers well and above all because his small daughter gives him the strength to move ahead. He notes that each time he sees his little girl he feels the need to continue despite how tired he is.

Junior is very grateful to KIVA lenders because, thanks to their support, he will be able to buy more merchandise for his business and earn more income to improve his family’s quality of life. He will also be able to save so that in a few months he can fulfill one of his dreams, that of “being a successful businessman.”
