Victor Alfredo
Victor is a 20 year old man who is single and lives in the city of Ica with his parents and siblings. He is a very friendly, hardworking, and enthusiastic person with a great will to overcome problems. Unfortunately, because of a lack of economic resources, and because he had to work from a very young age, Victor was not able to pursue the culinary degree that he wanted. In his free time, he likes to play soccer with his friends and he sometimes cooks a delicious Carapulcra con Sopa Seca (a local dish of dried potatoes and meat with sauce served with pasta and soup) to share with his family.
On his own initiative, and with much determination and dedication, Victor works as a chef's assistant in a restaurant in the city. He works chopping vegetables, washing plates, serving food, and other tasks, and can work for about 11 hours. Victor believes that he is doing well because of his good performance and for the kind way that he treats others.
Victor is very grateful to the Kiva lenders as, thanks to the help they have offered, he will be able to buy a refrigerator which will enable him to be able to preserve his food and drinks. Victor will keep working and striving to achieve his great dream to be a chef.
