Jonatan is a young man, 22 years of age, who lives in the city of Pucallpa - a very beautiful city in the amazon jungle of Peru. The city's proximity to the jungle allows residents to appreciate the impressive flora and fauna in their surroundings, and disconnect from the noise of the city. Jonatan is very hardworking and optimistic, and he managed to study a career in auto-mechanics as he enjoys fixing vehicles very much. In his free time he enjoys walking around his city, as well as eating one of his favorite dishes - the delicious "caldo de gallina" (hen soup).

With much enthusiasm and desire to get ahead, Jonatan works as a moto-taxi driver. He works approximately 10 hours every day, and his business has been going well thanks to his hard work and his desire to make his parents proud.

Jonatan is very grateful for Kiva lenders as thanks to the help they provide him he will be able to buy metal siding, nails, and wood among other things in order to make some home improvements. He would like to fix his roof since it always rains in his city. This way, he will be able to improve his quality of life and continue to work hard towards his dream of having his own mechanic shop some day.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
