Miguel Angel's story

Miguel is 20 years old and lives in the city of Ina, in the district of Parcona with his partner and young daughter. Despite being so young, he is a very kind, hardworking and enthusiastic person, who along with his partner, have great desire to get ahead in life. Unfortunately, because of the need to work to cover their expenses, Miguel wasn't able to pursue a professional career, though he would have greatly liked to do so. In his free time he likes to play soccer with his friends and on some occasions he cooks a delicious beef stew to share with his family.

With much effort, enthusiasm and the support of his partner, Miguel launched his small business of selling vegetables. He has a small space in a central market in his district where he makes his sales. Everyday, from the early hours of the morning, he starts his work and works approximately 12 hours daily. He thinks it is going well because of his dedication and for the kind treatment he provides his customers. Miguel is very grateful for the loans from Kiva. Thanks to the assistance provided he will be able to purchase ingredients to prepare spices like: mustard, various ground aji, ground coriander, and pepper among others. This way Miguel's business will be better stocked and he hopes to increase his sales and income, which will allow him to expand his business little by little so he can continue working and striving, along with his family, to get ahead in life.
