Angel Smith
Angel is 20 years old, single, and lives in the city of Ica with his parents and siblings. He is a very kind, hardworking and enthusiastic person who strives to do his best in all areas of life. Unfortunately, since he grew up in a family of scarce resources, Angel has always needed to work to make ends meet and was never able to pursue the university degree of his dreams, Mechanical Engineering. In his free time, Angel likes to play soccer with his friends and cook delicious Chaufa Rice for his family.

Through his own initiative, and with lots of hard work and dedication, Angel has found work for himself as a security guard for various businesses around the city. He works 10 hours every day, and he believes that work is going well because he is very responsible and treats everyone he meets with kindness and respect.

Angel is grateful to Kiva lenders for their support, and he plans to use the funds from this loan to complete a construction project to add a room onto his house. Presently, he and his siblings all sleep in one small, dilapidated room in their house. Angel hopes to build a safer room for his siblings with this project and to improve their quality of life. His future plans are to continue working at his current jobs, and he hopes to one day be able to pursue a university degree and improve his quality of life.
