Julio Cesar
The young adult who has liked music, sports, and cooking. He has put forth efforts since high school in soccer games, athleticism, and tae kwon do.

After leaving school, he started his work life by making restaurant home deliveries. He was learning the trade, and that is how they decided to promote him to waiter. His eagerness and his wish to get ahead continually drove him to start a Hotel Administration program.

However, due to the turns that life takes, he was not able to pursue this area professionally.

He had some savings, and he decided to set up a small recreation business, which he works at successfully.

After a time, the passion for what he likes took him to CampoAlto, where he enrolled and is in his first semester of the cooking program. With this he hopes to once again take up his passion. He hopes to be able to develop a brand of food that, in the future, will be well-known and very well rewarded.

This Kiva loan will be used to provide borrowers with needed goods or services, as opposed to cash or financial credit.

About CampoAlto

CampoAlto is a for-profit education institute that offers a variety of classes to students from socially or economically marginalized groups, including women, ethnic minorities, displaced populations, disabled individuals, and those living below the poverty line. Kiva funding is being used to pay tuition for students who couldn’t otherwise afford to attend classes.

Because CampoAlto’s core business is not purely microfinance, there is some level of additional risk for lenders. For this reason, Kiva has not assigned the institute a risk rating.
