Julian Ricardo's story

Julian is a 37 year old man who lives with his partner and 2 young children for whom he and the mother of his children give their all to get ahead and be stronger as a family. At present, this small family lives in the city of Ica, a place that is making big economic improvements and each day give a better reception to the new microentrepeneurs.

Julian enjoys reading very much and learns a little bit more that what he currently does because he wants to answer any of his little ones questions that they may have as they continue to grow and learn. Julian is a welder; he makes iron doors and windows and works about 10 hours a day. He says that there have been occassions when he has had some problems designing his work but with time he has improved and progressed in his business.

Julian works in this field because he has a good number of customers and is able to have enough income to meet all of his families’ daily expenses. With the help of Kiva loaners, Julian wishes to buy machinery, a compressor and a soldering-iron, both of which will help him improve and make his work easier. He wishes to be a leader in this type of business and to increase his customers since he doesn’t want 4 daily customers but double or triple that amount since it will help his little children become great professionals.
