Jesús Alberto's story

Jesús is the oldest of three siblings, and lives with the other two children and their mother, who is separated from their father. Their father helps financially when he can, but now has another partner and a new family. Jesús' mother is a secretary, and he runs a small business renting sound equipment. Together, they support the family. The cost of the younger children's education and supporting the household makes it very hard for Jesús to pay tuition at the institute where he studies. He therefore needs a more flexible payment plan to cover tuition and continue his studies. Without the support of Kiva lenders, Jesús will have to leave school to work until he's saved enough to pay the tuition. Jesús is ready to become the first person in his family to establish a professional career, serve as an example to his younger siblings, and become a source of pride for his mother. He is therefore applying for a loan and is grateful for the support that Kiva lenders. The student loan that they are making possible will allow him to lower his tuition payments to an affordable level and achieve his immediate goal of finishing his studies in mechanical maintenance. With this education and training, Jesús will be able to set up his own shop one day, where he'll be able to train talented but deprived young people who need the support of people like him.
