Luis Saul
Luis is a young man of 22 years of age. He is very hard working and also very optimistic. He lives with his mother and two younger siblings. He supports them a lot with the fruit of his labors because they are of humble backgrounds. His home is located in the city of Imperial. This city is characterized for having a warm and friendly climate. It is developed by agriculture, especially the cultivation of cotton and corn, among others. We can also find beautiful beaches here and above all, its people are very amiable.

Luis has worked since he was very young. When he finished his secondary schooling and upon seeing that his mother's earnings were not enough, he began to work on a farm where he now has worked for four years. He believes that his work is going well for him because he is very responsible and honest, and above all his greatest motivation is helping his family.

Luis is very thankful for the Kiva lenders because thanks to the help that he is provided with he will be able to make improvements to his home. His home is made of adobe and reeds. With this support he will be able to buy reed panels and plastic so he can repair his roof. Because of the rainy season and as a result of the house's materials, water leaks through the roof and at times floods. In this way he will be able to improve his family's quality of life and continue working to make his largest dream come true: to study for a college degree, become a professional and give his family a better quality of life and his brothers an education.
