Luis Alberto's story

Luis is a 22 year old man, who lives in the city of Ica with his partner and his small son, whom he loves and are the most important thing in his life. He is a very kind person, hard worker and enthusiast, who has a strong desire to get ahead. Unfortunately due to lack of financial resources he could not study the professional career of mechanical engineering that he would have liked to do.

In his spare time, he likes to cook a delicious rice with chicken to share with his family. With much hard work and dedication, Luis works providing transport services. He has a mototaxi, which uses every day from early hours in the morning when he starts his work. He comes out to tour the various streets of his city in search of passengers, Luis works approximately eight hours and believes that he is doing well because he knows the routes and knows where to find more clients.

Luis is very thankful with the Kiva lenders, since thanks to their support he could make the construction of a room in his parents' home to live with his partner and small son. Luis will continue to work and strive for that in the not-too-distant future may have his own house. Together with his family, he wants to get ahead.
