Israel Ivan's story

Israel is a 35 year old man. He lives in the city of Chincha with his spouse and his two young children, whom he loves and who are his main motivation in life. He is a very cheerful, hardworking, and enthusiastic person, who dedicates all his effort to getting his family ahead. Thanks to his efforts and the support of his parents, Israel was able to study for a professional career in Agriculture. In his free time, he enjoys cooking a delicious Carapulcra to share with his family. Through his own initiative and with much determination and dedication, Israel works as an agricultural expert in a business in his city. Additionally, on the weekends, he works as a mototaxi driver. He works every day from the early hours of the morning, and he can work for approximately 8 hours. He feels comfortable doing his work, and he believes it’s going well for him due to his good performance and the kind manner that he shows to others. Israel is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to the help they have given, he will be able to purchase a small plot of land, which in the near future will be his home. Therefore, he will continue working and making an effort to achieve his greatest dream of having a clothing sales stand in a big business center.
