A loan of $400 helped to buy a bed.

Miguel Angel's story

Miguel is a 22-year-old man who lives with his parents and siblings in the city of Ica, in the district of Parcona. He is a responsible, friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic person who dreams of excelling. Unfortunately, due to financial hardship, Miguel had to start working at an early age in order to help his parents. He wasn't able to study Systems Engineering like he had hoped to do.

In his free time, Miguel likes to play soccer with his friends and, on special occasions, cook the delicious Seco de Cordero (a typical Peruvian dish) to share with his family.

By his own initiative and with much determination and dedication, Miguel has made a living thus far as a taxi driver, working in his home city. He works 12-hour days and believes his work has been successful so far because he is very responsible and knows where in the city to find the most passengers.

Miguel is very grateful to Kiva lenders because this loan will help him to buy a bed, which will be very helpful because he currently shares one with his younger brother. This loan will help Miguel to provide for his family. He will continue to work hard in order to reach his dream of one day becoming a professional.
