Jonathan Gerardo's story

Jonathan, 19, is a single, young man living in the city of Chincha with his parents and siblings. He’s a very kind, hardworking, enthusiastic person who very much wants to improve. Thanks to his effort and family support, Jonathan is studying Tourism, Hotel Management and Gastronomy. In his free time he likes to find small jobs to do and sometimes cooks a delicious “Carapulcra con Sopa Seca” to share with his family.

On his own initiative and with much effort and dedication, Jonathan works as an assistant for a local tourism firm. He works every day starting very early in the morning and works 6 hours. He feels good doing his work and thinks he does well because of his sense of responsibility and the kind way he treats others.

Jonathan is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support they’ve given him he will be able to buy his study materials like textbooks, notebooks, leaflets and others so that he can continue with his classes and working toward reaching his great dream of becoming a good professional and his parents' source of pride.
