Israel
In the city of Imperial, characterized by its varied climate, beautiful beaches and agriculture, lives Israel, a twenty year old young man with contagious charisma and a desire to succeed. Since he was very young, Israel learned to work because his parents had few economic resources. It is because of this that he only attended school through the fifth grade.

Each morning Israel wakes up very early to go to work in a naturist company in the city. He works about nine hours per day and this allows him to help his parents with their living expenses.

Israel is very grateful for Kiva loans because they allow him to repair and maintain his small, broken down motorcycle in order to go to work in a distant part of the city. He will now be able to arrive to work on time and save money so he can continue to work towards realizing his biggest dream: to get a degree in Agriculture.
