Jimmy Javier
Jimmy lives in the city of Ica, in Parcona district. This area is noted for the generosity of its residents. Like all good Peruvians, Jimmy loves our food and one of his favorite meals is the delicious 'Arroz con Pollo' (chicken and rice). In his free time, he enjoys going out for walks so that he can distract himself when he is worried.

Every day, Jimmy goes out to work very early. He provides a taxi service and works around 10 hours a day. He is able to serve up to 45 customers a day. He believes that his business is doing very well because he has a lot of faith in God and so he works well and is able to provide money for his household in an honest manner.

Jimmy is very grateful to Kiva lenders because, thanks to the help that they have given him, he will be able to have maintenance work carried out on his vehicle which will allow him to drive more safely. This will enable Jimmy to improve his income and continue working hard in order to fulfill his biggest dream "to be a civil engineer".
