A loan of $400 helped to buy a computer.

Ramon Aristides's story

Ramón is a 45 year old man who is single and lives in the city of Ica. He is a very friendly person, who is hard working and enthusiastic. He has a great desire to exceed himself. Unfortunately due to lack of economic resources and the need to work in order to pay his bills, Ramón was not able to study a professional career, but thanks to his dedication he is currently studying a technical computing career. In his free time he likes to disconnect watching television and sometimes he cooks a delicious grilled chicken dish to share with his family.

On his own initiative, with hard work and dedication, Ramón works as a security guard, offering a security service to a factory in his city. He works every day for approximately 12 hours and thinks things are going well thanks to his good performance and friendliness towards others.

Ramón is very grateful for the Kiva loans, as thanks to the help received he will be able to buy a computer. This will help him do his work and academic practice. Ramón will continue working and making an effort to fulfil his dream of having his own house.
