Luis Antonio's story

Luis, 22, is single and lives with his parents and siblings in the city of Chincha. He is very friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic, and has a great desire to better himself. Thanks to his efforts and the support of his parents, Luis was able to study Auto Mechanics at technical school. In his free time he likes to listen to music, and sometimes he cooks Frejoles con Seco [beans with meat] to share with his family.

At his own initiative, and with much dedication, Luis works as a mechanic in a textile factory in his city. He works every day from very early in the morning, working about 8 hours a day. He is happy doing his work and believes that it's going well because of his performance and his friendliness with his coworkers.

Luis is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to their help he has been able to buy construction materials and cover the costs of labor. He wants to plaster and paint a wall, which will provide greater security and well-being for his family. He will continue working and making an effort to get ahead and achieve his dream of having his own mechanic's workshop.
