Guido's story

Guido is 33 years old. He lives in the city of Ica, in the Parcona district, with his small 6 year old son, whom he loves and is his main reason for living. Guido is a very friendly person, hard-working and enthusiastic, who dedicates all of his efforts to improving life for his son, as Guido is both mother and father to him. Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial recourses and because he needed to start working at a very young age, Guido was not able to study for a professional career in Systems Engineering, but he would have liked to have been able to do so. In his free time, he plays soccer with his friends, and occasionally prepares a delicious Arroz Chaufa (Peruvian fried rice) to share with his family.

On his own initiative and with a lot of effort and dedication, Guido works as a mototaxi driver, providing transportation services in his city. He works every day for about 10 hours and he thinks he is doing well because he knows which areas to find the greatest number of passengers. Guido is very thankful to the Kiva lenders as thanks to the help they have provided he will be able to buy a computer, which will help him provide better means for his small son to study. He will also continue working and making efforts to achieve his biggest dream, which is to complete construction of his home in order to provide his family with better security and wellbeing.
