The house where Jesus lives is located in the city of Ica, a city characterized by its warm climate, its farming, and especially cotton, grape, asparagus and more. As a good Peruvian, Jesus likes food. His favorite dish is the delicious arroz con pollo. Jesus went to school up to the fifth year of secondary school, but he would have liked to study mechanical engineering.

Day to day, Jesus works as a taxi driver. He works around 8 hours a day and can serve up to 20 customers a day. He believes that it is going well for him in his job because he is responsible when he drives and friendly to his customers.

Jesus is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to their help he will be able to build a room. Right now, he lives in inadequate surroundings. More than anything, during winter his little one gets sick a lot. With this, he will be able to offer him a better quality of life and above all have safety for his family. Jesus will keep working very hard because he wants to make one of his biggest dreams come true: give his son a good education and own his own home.
