Peter Jeremy
Peter comes from a broken home and lives alone with his mother in the populous Comas district of Lima. She has been both father and mother to him since Peter's father abandoned them and never financially contributed to support their home.

His mother works as a seamstress in various workshops, and she has managed to get ahead with great effort and sacrifice for her son, giving him an education as far as possible. Unfortunately, she is now going through a bad time and can no longer finance Peter's studies. Without the support of Kiva lenders, Peter will have to give up his technical studies.

He wishes to finish his studies of automotive mechanics and to have his own workshop in the future, where he can provide work for young people like him who are eager to learn and get ahead. This is why he is very grateful for all the support that Kiva lenders can provide for him to continue his studies and make his dream a reality.

He wants to pay back his mother for all the sacrifices she has made to help him, to help her financially, and to give her a decent life.

More information about this loan

This loan is structured on as a bullet-loan, or featuring only a single payment at the end of the loan term. Kiva's partner IPFE offers students an optional grace period and flexible repayment schedule, as their capacity to repay is limited and often unpredictable during the course of their studies. This means that although this student client is likely to make a number of small, gradual repayments over the course of his or her loan term, Kiva and IPFE are unable to project when exactly these will occur. Therefore, although these payments have not been factored into the repayment plan on Kiva, you will likely be reimbursed for a portion of this loan before the bullet payment at the end of the loan term.
