Isaias Smith's story

Isaías, 21, lives in the city of Ica in Santiago District with his parents and siblings. He’s a very kind, hardworking, enthusiastic person who very much wants to improve. Thanks to his efforts and support from his family he’s studying a professional career. In his free time he enjoys playing soccer with his friends and sometimes they take advantage of the opportunity to enjoy some delicious “Chicharrones de Chincha.” [fried pork with manioc]

On his own initiative and with much effort and dedication, Isaías works as a laborer in a firm in his city. He starts work every day very early and can work about 8 hours daily. He thinks he does well because of the good way he works and the kind way he treats others.

Isaías is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support provided he will be able to buy a mototaxi he’ll use to provide transportation services. In this way, Isaías hopes to generate higher income that he can use to complete his professional studies and he can continue working and striving to get ahead and reach his dream of becoming a good professional.
