A loan of $400 helped to purchase land.


Juan Carlos's story

Juan is 31 years old. He lives in Ica, in the Santiago district, with his wife and young daughter. He loves them and they are his main reason for living. He is very friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic. He and his wife dedicate all of their efforts to improving the lives of their family. Unfortunately due to a lack of financial resources, Juan had to start working when he was very young and couldn't complete a degree in Mechanical Engineering, but he would have liked to do so very much. In his free time, Juan plays soccer with his friends. On his own initiative and with a lot of effort and dedication, Juan works as a field laborer on an agricultural holding in the city. He works approximately 10 hours every day and believes he has been successful due to his hard work and his friendly treatment of others. Juan is very thankful to the Kiva lenders. Thanks to their help he will be able to purchase a small plot of land, which in the not-too-distant future will become his home. He will continue working and making efforts to achieve his greatest dream of having his own home.
