Roman Alberto's story

Roman is a 36-year-old man who lives in the city of Ica, in the district of Santiago. He lives with his wife and two small children, whom he loves, and they are his main reason for living.

Roman is a very kind, hardworking and enthusiastic person, who, along with his wife, puts all of his effort toward supporting his family. Thanks to the effort and support of his parents, Roman was able to study a professional degree in Civil Engineering. In his spare time, he likes to watch television and he occasionally makes a delicious dish of rice with seafood to share with his family.

On his own initiative, with a lot of determination and dedication, Roman works in the public works sector of a municipal company in his city. He works every day beginning in the early morning, and he can work for about 8 hours. He feels comfortable doing his job and believes that it is going well because of his strong performance and the kind way in which he treats others.

Roman is very appreciative of Kiva lenders. Thanks to the help provided, he will be able to pay for hospitalization costs and medicine for his wife, who is suffering from a painful illness and needs surgery urgently. With the loan, Roman hopes to improve her health and alleviate her suffering somewhat. He will continue working and pushing himself to achieve his great dream of providing his daughters with a good education. He wants to see them grow up to be good professionals.
