Antony Harold's story

Antony is 19 years old and lives in the cheerful city of Chinca. Chincha is noted for being a city with one of the largest Afro-Peruvian populations in the country. It is a city in which people dance traditional dances such as the festejo, landó and zamacueca. The local people are experts in preparing tasty food. In this area we find beautiful beaches and, above all, a hot climate. Whenever he has a little free time, Antony enjoys listening to music and reading course literature because he is studying for a degree in industrial engineering. He covers his expenses through his work. Antony also sometimes enjoys eating one of his favorite dishes: 'carapulcra con sopa seca'.

Antony works day by day as a worker for a company that sells building supplies. He works around eight hours a day because he studies at night. He believes that he is doing well in his work because he is responsible and serves customers well.

Antony is very grateful to Kiva lenders because, thanks to their help, he will be able to buy study materials such as books, a calculator, offprints, models, etc. This will enable him to continue studying and working hard to make his biggest dreams come true: to finish his degree and own a small business.
