Juan Bautista
Juan is 56 years old, has a partner, and has two children who are 11 and 13 years of age. He loves them very much, works very hard every day to give them a good quality of life, and for them to be more successful than him. He lives in the city of Marcona. Marcona is known for its beautiful beaches as well as fishing and mining. The climate is very unstable but in the summer it is very hot. During his free time he likes to listen to music and most of all eat one of his favorite dishes “Ceviche,”especially with sweet potatoes and popcorn, Juan tells us.


Every day Juan works with much enthusiasm in his boat to since he is a fisher. He fishes around eight hours a day. He wakes up very early to prepare everything he needs to work. Business is going well because he is very hard working and above all has a lot of faith in God.


Juan is very thankful for the Kiva lenders because through them he will be able to maintain his boat, refine the motor, and paint the boat. This will help increase profits to help one of his biggest dreams come true: “Give his children a good education and have more boats.”
