Jimmy Alonso's story

Jimmy is a man of 23. He is single and lives in the city of Ica with his parents and siblings. He is a very friendly person, hard-working and enthusiastic, who has a great desire to achieve. Thanks to his effort and the support of his parents, Jimmy is now studying for a degree in computers and information. In his free time he likes to watch educational programs on television, and sometimes he cooks a very rich chicken with rice dish to share with his family.

With much effort and dedication and thanks to the help of a relative, Jimmy works in his little business of selling clothing for women as well as for men and children. Every day he begins his work in the early hours of the morning. He can work about 8 hours a day, and he believes that his work is going well for him because of his dedication and the friendly treatment he offers to his customers.

Jimmy is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to the help they offer he will be able to complete the purchase of merchandise such as polo shirts, pants, shorts, and blouses, among other clothing items. In this way, Jimmy will have his business well stocked. With this, he hopes to improve his sales and increase his income, which will help him greatly so that little by little he can expand his business and thus achieve his great dream of having his own house.
