Miguel Angel's story
Miguel was born in Lima. He lives in the populous district of San Juan de Lurigancho with his father, a retired policeman; his mother, a housewife; and his two siblings. The retirement payments that his father gets are not enough to continue paying for his technical degree in industrial electronics. Miguel would have to leave his studies in order to start working. He would not be able to continue with his education without financial help from the Kiva lenders. The family has engaged in business activities by selling food in order to get together funds, month to month, to pay for his studies. Nevertheless, support from that is diminishing, and they now do not get enough. His dream is to finish his studies and to work for a company that will allow him to grow professionally and personally. At the same time, he wants to support his parents, who have sacrificed so much so that he can get ahead. Miguel is grateful for the support being provided so that he is able to not only fulfill his dream of studying and becoming a professional, but also for the positive impact that this represents for his family to get ahead together.
