Miguel Hernan's story

Miguel is an honest, charismatic and hardworking young man. He lives in La Cofradía, which is an outlying neighbourhood of the city, in a rented home together with his family.
Miguel is the father of two children who attend school. They are what motivates him to work hard day after day. Although he can't give them luxury, he always provides what they need to live and to get a good education.
Miguel works hard during the day in an electrical shop for vehicle sound systems. Here he learned the necessary knowledge to open his own small shop in his home where he provides services repairing household appliances and radios to earn extra income for his home.
He wants to buy more work tools and materials to finish his work more quickly. This is why he is requesting support from the Kiva organization. In this way Miguel hopes to make the service he offers to his customers more profitable.
