Jesus's story

Jesus is 19 years old. He is a very hard-working and enthusiastic young man, and lives in the city of Chincha. This city is known for being the birthplace of great Peruvian sport heroes. As well, it has a warm climate, beautiful beaches, and its inhabitants are known for the good way they use seasoning in the preparation of any dish.

In his free time Jesús likes to listen to music and play soccer with his friends and neighbors. He also likes to sample one of his favorite dishes, the very delicious "arroz chaufa" (Chinese-style fried rice).

With much effort, Jesús managed to study for a technical career, and he is an electrical technician. He works as a taxi driver and shows great dedication. He works around 12 hours daily, and can serve up to 20 customers in a day. He thinks his business is going well because he is very respectful to his customers.

Jesús is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, because thanks to their help he will be able to do maintenance work on his vehicle, and be able to buy tires and some accessories. This will enable him to have a vehicle that is in good condition and safer for the customers he serves. This will allow him to have greater income and continue his daily struggle to fulfill his great dream: "To study for a university degree and have a vehicle maintenance shop."
