Jaime Edgardo's story

Jaime is a 25 year old man. He is single and lives with his parents and siblings in their humble home in the city of Chincha. Jaime is a very happy, hardworking and enthusiastic person. He dedicates all his efforts toward getting ahead and helping his dear parents. They are very old and in need of his care. Unfortunately, because of needing to work and meet expenses, Jaime hasn't been able to study a profession. But he very much would have liked to do so. In his free time, Jaime likes to watch news and educational programs on TV. And sometimes he cooks a delicious Rice and Duck to share with his family.
Jaime works, with a lot of determination and enthusiasm, every day as a laborer for a logistical services company in the city. He works about 12 hours a day. He is happy with his work, as his bosses think highly of him for his diligence and friendly treatment of others.
Jaime feels very grateful to the Kiva lenders. Thanks to the help they have offered, he will be able to buy a mattress for his mother's bed. She suffers from a painful illness and needs to have an adequate mattress to be able to rest. Then he will be able to offer his family greater security and well-being. He loves his family very much and wants to support them. Thanks to his work and effort, in the near future Jaime hopes to have his own house and start his own family.
