Juan, 32, lives in the city of Pisco, together with his wife and their young son. He loves him and he is his main motivation in life. Juan is a kind, hardworking and enthusiastic person. Together with his wife, he works hard to get ahead with his family. Unfortunately, due to the lack of money and the difficult situation, he has had to work since he was very young. He could not study Civil Engineering, although he would have wanted to. During his free time he likes to watch football.

Juan took the initiative to open a grocery store, where he works hard. He also works as a mason and works in total around twelve hours every day. He believes that he is successful because he offers good prices and is kind to his customers.

Juan appreciates the help that Kiva lenders gave him, since he will be able to buy building materials such as bricks, cement, and sand. With these materials he will build a kitchen in his house and with the remaining money he will buy some food supplies and beverages for his store. He will continue to work hard in order to finish building his house and provide his family with a more comfortable and safer environment, which is his biggest dream.
