Erick Alain
Erick is very hard-working and enthusiastic. He is 34 years old. He lives at the side of his wife and 5-year-old son who is quite a handful because he is very mischievous, but nevertheless he doesn't stop striving day by day to give him a happy and quality life since he loves him very much. His home is located in the city of Ica. This city is known for its hot weather in any given season of the year. Also, the Haucachina Lagoon is found here which is visited by countless tourists in any given season of the year. In addition, the city's agriculture is flourishing, above all in the growing of cotton, paprika, asparagus, and grapes. When he has spare time, he likes to fix things, but sometimes, he also takes advantage of these opportunities by eating one of his favorite dishes which is the delicious arroz con pollo [rice with chicken]. He only had secondary studies, but he would have liked to study Civil Engineering.

With much enthusiasm, he goes to work day after day in his business as a construction equipment operator. He works in his business around 10 hours a day. He believes that his business is going well because people always call him to do jobs since he is very responsible and polite.

Erick is very grateful for the Kiva lenders since it is the second time that they are providing him support and thanks to this opportunity, he will be able to buy lumber for his job so he will be able to continue working in order to accomplish his greatest dream: to provide his son with a profession.
