Victor Leonardo's story

Víctor is a 32 year old man, is single, and lives in the city of Ica. He is a very friendly, hard-working and enthusiastic person who has a great desire to improve himself. Thanks to his efforts and to the help of his family, Victor was able to study the technical career of mechanic. In his spare time he likes to continue working and on some occasions he cooks a delicious Arroz con Pollo [chicken with rice], which is his favorite food.

With much determination, dedication and thanks to the teachings of his parents, Victor is working offering transportation services. He counts on a small car which he uses to offer group travel. Everyday from the early hours of the morning he goes out to travel around the streets of his city in search of passengers. He can work approximately 8 hours and believes that he is doing well because he is very responsible.

Victor is very grateful for the Kiva loans, since thanks to the help offered he will be able to pay the registration costs, enrollment and buy the study materials. Victor will begin his studies specializing in automobile electronics. In this manner he will be able to satisfactorily study, then he wants to be able to little by little achieve his dream to have his own mechanic workshop and his own home.
