Jose Francisco's story

Jose is a 44 year old man. He lives in the city of Pisco with his wife and their three children, whom he loves and who are his main reason for living. He is a friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic person. Together with his wife, he puts all of his efforts into getting his family ahead. Unfortunately, due to a lack of resources and out of a need to work since he was very young, Jose was unable to have the military career he wanted to have. In his free time, he likes to spend time in the countryside and on occasions, cook a delicious cuy chactado to share with his family. On his own initiative, with much hard work and dedication, Jose works in a municipal business in his city. He works every day for approximately 10 hours and he thinks it is going well for him because of his hard work and the friendly way he treats others. Jose is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to their help he will be able to buy two shelves, a table and some general groceries. This way, Jose. with his wife's help, will be abel to start a small business selling groceries from their home. This will be very useful for them to achieve their dream of having a mini-market.
