Carlos Diego Alonso's story

Carlos is 20 years old, very enterprising and hard working. He lives in the city Chincha, known for its beautiful beaches and warm climate. In his free time he likes to prepare his favorite dish in order to spend more time with his family. He finished his secondary school studies through much determination but unfortunately because he lacks the resources, he cannot study at university, but it is his dream to one day be able to go to university to major in Engineering. Carlos sews for a living, his shifts are on a rotating basis, sometimes at night sometimes at day. He normally works 8 hours a day. Carlos is very skilled in his line of work and likes his work. Carlos is very appreciative of the loans through Kiva because these loans will help him purchase a kitchen for his mother as well as a diverse range of utensils like pots, coffee sets, plates and silverware etc. In this way, he will be able to provide some commodities and improve his family's quality of life.
