José is 31 year old man. He is single and lives in the city of Ica in the district of Santiago. He is a very friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic person who really wants to get ahead. Lamentably, because of a lack of financial resources, and out of a need to work to support his parents, José was unable to study the the major of education, but he really would have liked to do so. In his free time, he likes to watch television and sometimes cook a delicious arroz chaufa to share with his family.

With much hard work and dedication and thanks to the support of his parents, who taught him his craft, José works in his small business making and selling bread. He works every day starting very early and can work for about 10 hours. He is happy doing his work and believes that it is going well for him because of the friendly treatment he gives his customers.

José is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to their help he will be able to buy a small motorcycle. This will help him be able to deliver his delicious bread in different places. This way, he can keep working and striving to achieve his dream os having a great bread bakery and getting ahead.
