Ricardo Miguel's story

Ricardo is 71 years old and lives in the city of Ica, in the district of Parcona. He is a very friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic person, he has two children who are adults and for whom he has put all of his efforts into getting ahead. Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources, and due to the need to work from a young age, Ricardo was unable to pursue a professional degree, but thanks to his father's teachings, Ricardo learned how to play several musical instruments.

At his own initiative and with a lot of hard work and dedication, Ricardo works in his small music performance business, working with small music groups and performing at parties. Ricardo works every day and can do so for approximately ten hours and believes that it is going well thanks to his friendly treatment with his customers.

Ricardo is very grateful to the Kiva loan lenders as it is thanks to the help given that he will be able to buy a computer and a printer which will be of a lot of use to his as he looks after a granddaughter who is at school and needs to improve her study methods. In this way, Ricardo will continue working and making efforts to achieve his great dream of seeing his granddaughter become an upstanding professional.
