Carlos Leonardo
Carlos is 20 years old, single, and lives in the city of Cañete in the Imperial district with his parents and brothers. He is a friendly, hardworking, and enthusiastic person who has a great desire to succeed. Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources and because he needed to work to help his parents, Carlos was not able to study Computing and Informatics at university, but he would have liked to do so. In his free time, he likes to play soccer with his friends and sometimes cooks rice with duck to share with his family.

By his own initiative, with a lot of effort and dedication, Carlos has been working for a year as a field worker at various farms and plots. He works every day for about eight hours and believes it is going well because of his responsibility and the kind treatment he gives everyone.

Carlos is very thankful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to their help, he will be able to purchase two fumigation backpacks, which will allow him to offer a service treating and fumigating crops. Carlos will continue working and making an effort to achieve his goal of becoming a professional so that he can gradually succeed.
