Helaman Jose's story

Helaman lives in the city of Camana where beautiful beaches are found and a varied cuisine can be enjoyed; among the dishes is one of the most delicious: “Chupe de Camarones. He’s a very hardworking man who very much wants to get ahead which is why Helaman works as an assistant in construction in whatever construction projects are current in the city because he helps his parents to cover household expenses. He works about 9 hours daily and can take care of up to 2 customers per day depending on the size of the construction project it is. He believes he’s getting ahead because he’s very responsible and works in an honest way.

Helaman is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support provided he’ll be able to make some home improvements, especially the walls that are quite cracked thus improving his family’s quality of life and continuing to strive to make his greatest dream reality: to buy a motorcycle to get around better.
