Julio
In the area of La Venta, a district caracterized by its great green landscapes due to the farming that is practiced in the area, lives Julio, a hardworking man that is little by little getting ahead despite adversities. Julio lives alongside his wife and two sons, who are the reason why he does everything possible to provide what is necessary to succeed, and his daily sacrifice is to give them opportunities he didn't have. This is why he work everyday as a carpenter. Julio works 8 hours a day, but on occasion, he can work a little more depending on the type of construction he's doing. Julio believes that he is succeeding at his job because he is very responsible and careful with his work.

Julio is very grateful to Kiva's lenders as it is the second time that they have given him support, and thanks to the help they have offered him this time, he will be able to buy a computer so that the youngest of his sons can have a tool to do school work. In this way he can keep supporting his children's education and keep working each day to be able to make real his greatest dream: to give his sons a good profession and to see his house completely finished.
