Miguel Angel's story

Miguel is a very hardworking man, and a loving husband and father. Together with his wife they do the impossible by maintaining their family and overall moving forward with their two children who are ages 7 and 2. For them their children are the greatest gift that god could give and especially because they are his reason for living. Due to limited financial resources he was only able to obtain a 5th grade level of education, but he would have loved to study to be a language professor.

Day to Day Miguel works as an operator of heavy machinery, especially ironing machine tracks. He works around 12 hours a day as there is always much work and overall requires much caution. He believes that his work is going well because he is very responsible and careful at what he does.

Miguel is very grateful for the assistance of the Kiva loans since that to the help that has been provided he will be able to construct some small rooms for his children so due to constant earthquake movements, the walls are very unstable and above all it us very dangerous for the children. In this way he will be able to provide a better quality of life and will be able to continue struggling to be able to realize his great dream: "to give a profession to his children and finish the building his house with good materials."
