A loan of $6,000 helped to continue and finish his studies in industrial mechatronics.


Cristhian Alexander's story

Cristhian lives in Lima with his parents. His father is an informal shoemaker, and his mother is a housewife. He decided to study in the program in industrial mechatronics in SENATI because every since he was very young, using the latest generation of equipment has always captured his attention. He now needs two years to finish his program and thus be able to work in a big industrial business.

Nevertheless, neither Cristhian nor his parents has sufficient economic means to cover the cost of his education. For this reason, he is applying for financial support from Kiva to finish his studies and become a professional qualified in the industrial field. He feels very grateful that there are people who support education in the world, especially who support the career that he is so passionate about, which is one of the best experiences of his life.

Cristhian says goodbye with this message: "To continue with my studies is part of the goal that I have set for myself. Thank you for helping me to complete my dreams."
