Emerson's story

Emerson is a 20-year old youth. He is single and lives in the city of Ica. He is a very friendly, hard-working and enthusiastic person who has a strong desire to overcome. Unfortunately, due to the lack of financial resources and the need for him to work, he was not able to get a professional degree in civil engineering though he would have really liked to do so. In his free time, he likes to continue working and on some occasions eat the delicious dish of rice with chicken, which is his favorite food.
Of his own initiative, with a lot of determination and dedication, Emerson works as a construction operator. He works every day from early in the morning and can do it for approximately eight hours. He feels good working and believes that things are going well for him due to his good performance and the friendly treatment he gives others.
Emerson is very grateful to the Kiva lenders since, thanks to the help provided, he will be able to buy a kitchen. It will be of great use to him in being able to adequately prepare his food in a more hygienic and healthy way, and he will thus continue working and striving to get ahead to achieve his dream of having his own home.
