Joel, 25, is single living in the city of Chincha. He’s a very kind, hardworking, enthusiastic man who very much wants to improve. Thanks to his efforts and support from his parents, Joel was able to study Education. In his free time he likes to spend some time reading and sometimes cooks a delicious “Carapulcra con Sopa Seca” to share with his family. On his own initiative and with much effort and dedication, Joel works as a teacher in a small educational center in his city. He works every day starting very early in the morning and can work approximately 8 hours. He feels good doing his work and thinks he does well because of the good way he does it and the kind way he treats others. Joel is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help provided he will be able to pay for the paperwork involved in formalizing his professional degree. In this way, Joel will have better opportunities for better positions and he will be able to continue working and striving to get ahead and reach his great dream of owning a house that’s his.
