Justo's story

Justo, 53, lives in the city of Ica with his 8 children, who he loves and who are his main reason for living. Unfortunately, some time ago Justo lost his beloved wife, and since then he is the pillar who works to keep his family together. Justo is very friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic. He was not able to study a professional career - he would have chosen Civil Engineering - but he would have very much liked to have done so. In his free time he likes to listen to music and sometimes cooks a delicious roasted chicken to share with his family.

By his own initiative, and with a lot of tenacity and dedication, Justo works in the field of construction. He is a master builder and works about 8 hours a day. He is happy doing his work and thinks that it goes well because of his good finished products.

Justo is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to their help he will be able to buy a computer which will help his younger children as a tool for their studies. He will continue working hard to achieve his greatest dream of having his own business, and with that he hopes to be able to get his family ahead.
