Juan Antonio's story

Juan is 27, single and lives in the city of Pisco with his parents and siblings. He is a very nice, hard working and enthusiastic person who has big dreams of being successful. Thanks to the efforts and support of his parents, Juan was able to get a degree in mechanics. In his free time he likes to play sports and sometimes he makes a delicious ceviche [popular seafood dish] that he shares with his family.

Through his own initiative and with hard work and dedication, Juan works as a laborer in the warehouse section for a company in his city. He works every day from early in the morning for about eight hours. Juan likes working and and believes he is doing a good job thanks to good performance and and he treats everyone well.

Juan is very thankful to the loans from Kiva. Thanks to their help he has been able to buy construction materials such as cement, iron bars and paint among other things. This way Juan hopes to complete construction on one of the rooms in his house. This way there will be more security and well being for him and his family. Juan will keep working and strive to get ahead and in the near future he hopes to fulfill his dream of owning his own home.
