Julio Cesar's story

Julio, age 25, is a hardworking and enthusiastic young man who lives in the District of Parcona. He is known for being a very determined individual and having one of the kindest hearts. Like any good Peruvian, he enjoys traditional food. His favorite dish is the flavorful "carapulcra" (a spicy stew made with pork, chicken, and potatoes).

Julio is working hard to complete his higher education and graduate to become a teacher. However, he would have liked to have studied veterinary medicine. Each day Julio works in his business as a taxi driver. He works approximately eight hours a day and is able to serve 20 customers. Julio believes that he is doing well in his business because he is very friendly and always respectful of his customers.

He is grateful to the Kiva lenders for the overwhelming support they have provided so that he can fulfill the requirements to obtain a university degree and become a teacher. Once he is able to work in his field of study, Julio will be able to improve his income and press forward toward his greatest wish of becoming a successful professional.
