Oscar Manuel's story

Oscar, 48, lives with his wife and two children who are 10 and 20 years old who he loves very much and for whom he works hard to provide a better life. Oscar’s house is in the city of Nazca, a city noted for its hot, welcoming climate. Farming and animal husbandry are common here too. Oscar is very hardworking and above all dedicated. He studied mechanical engineering and currently works for a firm as a heavy cargo truck driver. He works about 9 hours daily and believes that he does well because he has a strong drive to get ahead and above all because he’s responsible. Oscar is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support they’ve given him he will be able to pay tuition for one of his sons who is attending a local institute. He will also buy a computer so that his son can do his school work while he himself continues to work and strive to make his greatest wish reality: to give his children a good education and to succeed in having a great restaurant.
