Miguel Clemente's story

Miguel is a 34 year old man who is single and lives in the city of Nazca with his parents. He is a very friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic person who has a great desire to succeed. Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources and the need to work, Miguel was unable to study for a professional career. He would have liked to have done so. In his spare time he enjoys listening to music and occasionally cooks a delicious “arroz con pollo” to share with his family.

On his own initiative and with a great deal of effort and dedication, Miquel works at his business cultivating onions. In addition he works as a field laborer on an estate in the city on weekends. He works every day from very early in the morning and puts in approximately 8 hours. He feels things are going well for him because of his good performance and friendly treatment of others.

Miguel is very grateful to Kiva lenders because, thanks to their help, he will be able to cover the costs of irrigating, fertilizing and maintaining his fields. Thus he will be able to continue working to achieve his great dream, which is to have his own house
