Alan Miguel's story

Alan lives in Pisco, a city with a warm and welcoming climate, as well as beautiful beaches. This area is also developed in agriculture, especially in terms of corn, cotton, and other crops. With great effort and dedication, Alan was able to study to become an auto mechanic. He now wakes up early each day so that he can head to his job as a mechanic at a small repair shop in the city. Alan works approximately nine hours a day and the income from his job allows him to help his parents with the household expenses. He believes that he is succeeding because of his dedication and responsibility.

Alan is extremely grateful to the Kiva lenders. Thanks to the assistance they have provided, he will be able to buy a small space for starting his business. Over time he will be able to establish his own auto repair shop so that he can improve his earnings. Alan continues to strive toward fulfilling his greatest wish of opening a new business and having a house of his own.
