Ricardo Marco Antonio's story

Ricardo is a young man of 22 years of age. He is single and lives with his mother and siblings in the city of Ica in the district of Subtanjalla. He is a very happy, hardworking an enthusiastic person with a strong desire to improve and get ahead together with his family. Unfortunately because he needed to work to support his mother, he could not study to become a Systems Engineer as he had badly wanted to,  but he dreams of doing so one day soon.   

Thanks to his mother's support, two years ago as a product of his hard work and savings from prior work, Ricardo was able to set up his small internet cafe business. Every day from very early in the morning he offers his services. He feels happy with his business and believes it is going well because of the good service he offers his clients. 

Ricardo is very thankful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to their help he will be able to buy a computer, which he hopes to use to expand his internet business and in this way increase his income. In this way Ricardo hopes to be able to use his earnings to help his mother to build their house.
