Juan Carlos's story
Juan Carlos is a young student at SENATI, a trade institute in Peru. He is from Lima and lives with his mother and his four sisters. His father died. His mother is a cook in a restaurant in order to carry her children forward in life. He supports his mother by working as a waiter in the same restaurant, but the income that he receives is minimal. Currently, Juan Carlos is studying Stage II of the Industrial Management degree, which he has been interested in since he was a child. He feels that it will enable him to carry his family forward by helping his mother with his sisters’ education. Without the support of Kiva, Juan Carlos would have to stop studying this semester and work to gather the money necessary for him to resume and complete his studies. Juan Carlos is very grateful for the support that Kiva can give him in order to successfully finish his degree. He has a bright future, thanks to the work that Kiva does to support young people with the desire to succeed.
