A loan helped to buy computers.

Jaime Irbin's story

Jaime is a young man of 21. He lives in the city of Imperial, located south of our capital. The area's main activity is farming.

Jaime lives in his parents' home, and he contributes to the household expenses with what he earns from his work. This is especially because his parents have always provided him with everything he needed, and now, he says, is the time to thank them in some way for the caring and concern that they have felt for him.

Jaime is a very hard-working young man. He has an Internet café business, but not only that. He also does home gas delivery in the mornings, works in his internet business in the afternoon, and studies for a degree in Administration in the evenings.

He is a proactive and determined young man, as he divides his time among the three activities. He tells us that you can achieve everything; all you need is to have faith and do things with enthusiasm. He thinks that it's going well with his business because he is very organized, serves customers well, and also because his sister helps him lot when he isn't in the café.

Jaime is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, because thanks to their help he will be able to buy two more computers for his business. This way he will have more machines available to serve customers, and they will be more satisfied with his services. This way he will have more income, so that he will be able to continue saving, and fulfill his greatest dreams: "Completing his university degree, expanding his business, and being his parents' pride.”
