Beato Juan's story

Beato is 27 years old. He lives with his partner and his two young children who are 2 and 5 years old. They live in the city of Ica, a city which is home to one of the most important tourist attractions in the country, the Huacachina Lake. Ica is a city that enjoys hot weather year round and is noted for its farming, in particular for its cultivation of grapes, asparagus, artichokes and paprika. As a good Peruvian, Beato really enjoys our cuisine and one of his favorite dishes is the delicious 'pollo asado' (marinated, grilled chicken). He is currently studying for a degree in cookery and is in his first year.

Beato has a business renting out video games. He works around 12 hours a day in his business and can serve up to 14 customers. He believes that his business is doing well because he offers good customer service and his premises are large.

Beato is grateful to Kiva lenders because, thanks to their help, he will be able to buy a television set and three video-game consoles. This will allow him to improve his income and serve more customers. This will mean he can continue working in order to fulfill his biggest dream: to own his own home and a restaurant.
