Carlos Alberto's story

Carlos, a 22-year-old man, lives in the city of Ica in the Parcona district in his older sister's house. He loves her and is grateful for all her help. He's a very pleasant, hardworking, and enthusiastic person with a great desire for self-improvement. Thanks to his effort and the support of his family, Carlos was able to study chemical engineering. In his free time he likes to do sports and sometimes his sister makes a delicious chicken with rice to spoil him. With great effort and dedication, Carlos works in customer service in a mobile phone company. Also, in the afternoon he works in a fast food restaurant. He can work approximately 12 hours a day and he believes it's going well for him because of his dedication and the friendly way he treats people. Carlos is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to their help he'll be able to cover the expenses of enrollment, registration, lab materials, and degree processing. This way Carlos expects to get his professional degree in chemical engineering very soon. He's going to continue working and making the effort to realize his dreams of being a good professional and of having his own home.
