Junior Edwin's story

Junior is a very hardworking and enthusiastic young man. He lives in the district of Tinguiña, which is known for agriculture, particularly the cultivation of cotton and potatoes among other crops.

Junior is a young man in modest circumstances. He works as a laborer for a farm in the area using his wages to help his mother with household expenses and above all to help his younger brother with school expenses. He is getting ahead because he wants to provide his family with a better quality of life. That is what motives him to continue making an effort.

Junior is very grateful to Kiva lenders for, thanks to their support, he will be able to buy school supplies for his little brother since school has already started and, without supplies, his little brother cannot do his lessons. With the loan he will be able to provides the materials his brother needs to study and also continue working to make his own dream a reality, that of having a profession and lifting his family from poverty.
