Christian Enrique's story

Christian is a young man, 22 years of age, and the father of a 6-month-old son. He and his wife work very hard every day to be able to provide a quality life, full of love and caring, for their little one. Their home is located in the city of Chincha, known for its warm and pleasing climate. It is also known as the cradle of major glories in Peruvian sports and, in addition, because its residents have very good taste in the preparation of dishes, especially their local plates. When Christian has a little free time, he likes to go for a walk with his wife and young son, and particularly to spend time with his family. On occasions, he asks his wife to prepare one of his favorite dishes, the delicious Picante de Res (Spicy Beef). Christian works daily as an employee at a city hospital in the laundry department. It is very hard work, especially because he is always in contact with humidity. Christian works around 10 hours a day. He thinks he is doing well in his work because he is very responsible, honorable, and above all, respectful. Christian is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, especially because thanks to their help, he has been able to make some improvements to the little house where he lives and, in particular, to the walls, including plastering, painting, and improving the plumbing, among other things. In this way, he will be able to offer a better quality of life for his family and, thus, continue struggling daily to realize his grandest dream: to have his own house, since where he lives now is rented.
