Unfortunately, due to lack of financial resources, and because he needed to work, Jesus was not able to finish his professional degree so that he could become a math teacher. In his free time he likes to cook a very delicious ceviche to share with his family.
Through his own initiative, and with a great deal of effort and dedication, Jesus works as a mototaxi driver, providing transportation services in his city. Additionally he has a small parcel of land where he grows rice and where he does farm work. Jesus works every day for approximately 10 hours, and thinks it is going well due to how responsible he is, and the friendly way he treats other people.
Jesus is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, as thanks to the help provided, he will be able to carry out general maintenance and buy new tires for his mototaxi. In this way Jesus will have his work vehicle in better condition and be able to serve more passengers. He will continue working and doing his best to achieve his great dream of having a large grocery store where can work with his wife.
