His housing is located in the city of Ica, which is characterized by having a warm and welcoming atmosphere, also agriculture is developed specifically in the farming of cotton, grapes, asparagus, etc. Alfredo is studying dentistry. With the help of his parents, in spite of their humble condition, they helped him to study. He is also working part time to be able to meet the additional expenses of his profession. It is in this way he was able to get a job as an assistant in a dentist office, in which he worked almost 8 hours daily. He thinks that it is going well because he is friendly with the clients and above all is very patient.

Alfredo is very appreciative for the Kiva loans.Thanks to the assistance they have provided he will be able to take the steps to get his degree and purchase materials like resins, surgical equipment, gauze, cottons, etc. In this way he will be able to have the tools necessary to treat his patients and improve his income.
