Jhonny Orlando
Jhonny is 31 years old, single, and lives with his parents. He has been working for many years in the field of construction at a company owned by a friend. For this reason, he decided to study Civil Engineering. Jhonny started his studies in 2010 and now he is one year away from obtaining his degree. This is the reason why he is requesting a loan.

Jhonny comes from a family in which his parents are high school graduates. Therefore, he is looking for a way to raise the academic achievement level within his immediate family. His dream is to have his own construction business and to become an outstanding, successful, and recognized professional in his field. This would enable him to design and create his own projects, which would lead to a better income.

Jhonny is extremely grateful to everyone affiliated with Kiva for the opportunity to finish his studies. He is already financially solvent, so he wants to return the favor by helping other people who are of low income. For this reason, his two mottos are “we are all one” and “no risk, no reward”.
