Alelp Anthony's story

Alep is a young man of 19 years who lives in the city of Chinca, which is known for having a hot and cozy climate. It is also the cradle of Peruvian sports victories, and its inhabitants have a gift for preparing local dishes, which they make deliciously.

He is a very enthusiastic young man and that is why he works hard each day to get ahead. He is studying to be a veterinarian and is right now going into his second year, and even though he is a little tired from studying and working at the same time, he always summons the energy to keep going. He lives next to his parents, who help him a lot with his work.

Alep is very excited to have his own small business selling and raising laying hens and selling eggs. He devotes about nine hours a day to his business, then goes to class at night. He thinks that the business will go well because he has a lot of determination and, above all, because he is friendly with his customers.

Alep is very grateful for the Kiva loans, since thanks to their help he has been able to buy more hens and prepare a larger corral . In this way, his business has been able to grow more and he has been able to improve his profits. At the same time, he will continue fighting each day to make his dream come true - to finish his education and grow his business.
