A loan of $1,350 helped to buy an engine for his degree exam.

Paulo Cesar's story

Greetings from Peru!

I introduce you to Paulo, 18, who is studying automotive mechanics at an institute. He chose this profession because he likes cars; he will finish his studies in just one year. Currently, he is working as a student in a workshop to gain experience for his career. In the future, Paulo wants to have his own auto repair workshop. His loan will be used to buy components for the engine he will build as part of his degree exam. Paulo believes the loan will be very helpful, and without it he would not be able to meet his goal. This is his second loan. He used the first one to buy a computer to help with the academic part of his education.

Paulo is grateful to Kiva lenders: "Many thanks for opening the door to success for me!"
