Higinio's story

Higinio is a 41-year-old man who is married and lives with his wife in the city of Ica. He is a very enterprising and hardworking man. He always has watched over the well-being of his family and fought to give them a good start in life. Higinio very much would like to have been able to study administration in the university. Unfortunately he couldn't do it due to lack of resources, but he dreams about being able to study one day.

Thanks to his desire to get ahead and progress, Higinio works in an agricultural export company in the city, where he works as a manager in irrigation systems. He works approximately eight hours a day. He is very comfortable in his job because they appreciate him for his punctuality, efficiency, and good manner with the others.

Higinio is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to the help given he will be able to do the cleaning and plowing of his plot of land, where he wants to plant cotton and corn. This way he will be able to increase his income, which will help him give his wife a better quality of life. He also hopes to be able to study in the agronomy program soon, something he wants very much.
