Jim's story

Jim is 27 years old and lives in the city of Pucallpa. He is a very kind, hard-working, and enthusiastic person who has a desire to improve himself. Unfortunately because of a lack of financial resources and a need to work to support his parents, Jim was not able to attend university to study Business Administration like he wanted. In his free time, he likes to play soccer with his friends and neighbors.

Through his own initiative, with a lot of effort and dedication, Jim works as a store assistant at a business in his city. Every day from early in the morning, he goes to the store to start his work. He can work about eight hours and believes that it is going well because he works hard and is responsible.

Jim is very grateful to the Kiva lenders since thanks to the support they have provided, he will be able to make improvements to his home. He wants to refinish the walls, paint them, and make other repairs to his home. This will allow him to have better living conditions with better security for his well-being and comfort. He will be able to continue working and making progress towards achieving his dreams and goals.
