Milner Yuri's story

Milner is a 33 year old man. Sadly, his wife abandoned him, and he is the only one who cares for his 15 year old son. His son is about to finish his fifth year of high school and hopes to study Business Administration. The boy's goal is to help his father to improve his small business. Since the family is very tight, he desires to continue moving ahead and improving their income so that he can provide a better quality of life for them together.

Milner has a grocery store in which he sells dishes of food, sodas, groceries, and beer on a daily basis to earn the necessary income to save and carry out his son's dream. Currently, they both live in the city of Pisco.

With the help of the Kiva lenders, Milner will be able to develop the new business idea that he has. This idea consists of buying a copy machine. This support will allow him to have extra income and therefore be able to round up the money that he needs so that his son will be able to start his career in Business Administration. His dream is to be able to have a location of his own, and to always fulfill his home obligations.
