Marcial's story

Marcial is a young man who comes from Apurimac, a city located in the country's southern mountains on the western slope of the Andes mountain range. Together with his parents and seven siblings, Marcial came to Lima in search of a better future for his whole family. His parents make their livings in agriculture and, as such, their income in minimal. It is not enough to cover the cost of Marcial's education. To help his parents a bit, Marcial started working as a carbonated beverage delivery man when he was fourteen years old. But because he was going to school, he couldn't keep working. That is why Marcial is requesting a loan from KIVA, so that he doesn't have to stop going to school. He is currently going through a difficult financial time. Unfortunately, there was a time when Marcial couldn't go to school, as he didn't have enough money to register. He is currently in the third term of his Industrial Electronics degree. The degree is very interesting to him because it will allow him to establish himself better financially and to be able to help his parents with his younger siblings' educations. Marcial is very grateful for the help that KIVA is offering. It will allow him to continue going to school and to complete all his coursework and goals, like that of becoming an excellent professional and working for a very important company, or better yet, having his own company.
