Jesus Alonso
Jesús, 21, lives in the city of Chincha with his partner and his little one-year-old child, whom he loves and who is his main motivation in life. He's a very friendly, hardworking, and enthusiastic person who puts all his effort into getting his family ahead. Unfortunately, because of a lack of financial resources and the need to work, Jesús wasn't able to study to be an automotive mechanic, but he would very much like to have been able to. In his free time he likes to share pleasant moments with his family, and sometimes he cooks a delicious fried rice with duck to treat them.

On his own initiative and with a lot of effort and dedication, Jesús works as an independent tractor driver. He works every day from early in the morning and can work for approximately eight hours. He's comfortable doing his job and believes it's going well for him because of his good work and friendly customer service.

Jesús is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to their help he'll be able to buy construction supplies to repair the back part of the kitchen in his house. This way he'll give his family greater security and well-being and he'll continue working and making the effort to realize his big dream of having a better job as a mechanic for a big business.

About Caja Rural Señor de Luren

Caja Rural Señor de Luren is a microfinance institution based in Ica in southern Peru that primarily promotes the development of the country’s agricultural sector through lending. Today, it also offers credit for consumers, microenterprises and housing improvements, and has expanded its financial services to promote micro-savings and provide micro-insurance. This institution has been instrumental in helping borrowers recover from the devastating earthquake in the Ica region in 2007, and works with Peru’s National Bank to reach some of the poorest and most remote microfinance clients in the country.

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.
