Luis Malaquias's story

Luis is a 26-year old man who lives in the city of Ica with his parents and siblings. He is kind, hard-working and enthusiastic, and has a great ambition for self-improvement. Unfortunately, Luis couldn't study a professional degree due to a lack of financial resources and the need to work to help his parents; however, he would really like to do it. He likes to play soccer with his friends in his spare time and occasionally cooks a delicious Ají de Gallina to share with his family.

He took the initiative to work, with a lot of tenacity and dedication, at a veterinary clinic. He works as a driver, picking up and taking the little animals to their homes, every day from very early in the morning and for approximately 8 hours. He enjoys his job and thinks things are going well thanks to his punctuality and responsibility.

Luis is very grateful to Kiva lenders given that, thanks to their support, he will be able to renew his soon-to-be-expired driving license. This way he will drive legally and avoid problems in the city, and will continue to work hard to achieve his big dream of having his own house and a commercial business.
