A loan of $400 helped to cover his daughter's school expenses.

Anibal's story

Aníbal, 45, lives in the city of Cañete in the Imperial district with his young daughter, whom he loves and who is his main motivation in life. He's a very pleasant, hardworking, and enthusiastic person who dedicates all his effort to getting his family ahead. Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons Aníbal separated from his wife. Since then he has been both father and mother to his little girl. Aníbal wasn't able to study for a professional career because he had to work from a young age, but he would like to have been able to.

With a lot of effort and dedication Aníbal works in a company in his city. Every day he starts work very early, working approximately 10 hours a day. He believes it's going well for him because he's responsible and treats others well.

Aníbal is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to their help he'll be able to pay for his daughter's enrollment, registration, and school uniform. This way he'll give her a better education, because he's transferring her to another school that has a higher academic level.

He hopes to achieve his dream of seeing his little girl become a good professional and a good woman.
