Jonathan Jesus
Jonathan is a 20-year-old man. He's single and lives in the town of Chincha with his parents and siblings. He's a very kind, hardworking and enthusiastic person with a great deal of drive to overcome. Unfortunately, due to the lack of financial resources and the need to work in order to help his parents pay for their household's expenses, he couldn't study for a professional career in welding. However, he hopes to be able to do that very soon. During his free time he enjoys playing soccer with his friends. Occasionaly, he eats a delicious "arroz con puré" (rice with mashed potatoes), which is his favorite dish.
With a lot of hard work and dedication, Jonathan works in the grocery section of one of his town's supermarkets. Everyday he starts working from the early hours of the morning. He may work for about 8 hours, and he believes that he does well because he's very responsible and treats other people in a friendly way.
Jonathan is very thankful to Kiva lenders, since thanks to their help he'll be able to do home improvements. He wishes to be able to plaster and paint a large portion of his house and his bedroom, because a short while ago he wanted to help his parents and, thanks to his hard work, they were able to enlarge their house. That way Jonathan hopes to be able to keep on working in order to support his family. He also hopes to achieve his biggest dream of being a good professional and finishing the construction of his house, which will increase his family's safety and well-bring.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes.
