Jose Carlos's story

José is 40 years old, he lives in Chiclayo, in the district of Guadalupe. José has a small son who is 5 years old, who he loves very much and is his reason for living. He is a very friendly, hard working and enthusiastic person who dedicates all his efforts to give his son a better life. Unfortunately, due to a lack of economic resources and because he needed to work from an early age, José was not able to study for a professional career as a Mechanic. In his free time, he likes to watch television and from time to time he cooks the delicious dish Tallarines that he shares with his family. On his own initiative, and through hard work and determination, José has found work as working in the fields on an agricultural farm in his city. He works every day for around 12 hours and he believes that things are going well due to his responsibility and work ethic. José is very thankful to the lenders of Kiva and thanks to their help, he will be able to purchase a second hand motorcycle that will help him commute between his house and his job; the distance is very long and he is currently using a bicycle. And so, José can continue working to achieve his ultimate dream of having his own business and to be able to give his son an education.
