Alberto Lidifonso's story

Alberto is 37, single, and lives in the city of Ica in the district of Parcona. He is a very friendly, hard-working, and enthusiastic person. He has a great desire of getting ahead. Unfortunately, because of the need to work since he was very young, he couldn't go to college, but he would have liked to very much. In his free time, he read and sometimes eats delicious ceviche, which is his favorite food. Through his own initiative and much effort and dedication, he works as a taxi driver, offering transportation services every day. He starts very early in the morning, covering the streets of his city in search of passengers. He can work approximately 10 hours, and he thinks things are going well for him because of his friendly service. Alberto is very thankful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to the help they have offered him, he will be able to cover the medical costs for his eyes and will be able to buy the glasses that he needs. He hopes that this will make him feel better and he will start to get better so he can keep working and striving to get ahead, achieving his goals and his dream of having his own car.
