Luis Miguel's story

Greetings from Peru!

This is the first loan for 20 year old Luis Miguel, university student of psychology. He chose this profession as a vocation because he is eager to help people. He has been studying for two years and despite the financial difficulties he puts effort into getting ahead.

On the weekends he works in a market as a dock loader and the money he earns helps him pay for his travel expenses and some of the supplies he needs for his studies.

Luis Miguel is asking for a loan to pay tuition and all the fees for the new semester, so that he can study peacefully to become a successful professional, which is why he feels so grateful to the Kiva lenders who make it possible to get his loan.
