Alvaro Martin's story

Alvaro is a young man of 28 years old. He is father to a little girl of 6 years old who he loves very much and for whom he strives hard to give her a dignified life. Alvaro's house is in the city of Pisco, which is located on the south coast of Peru and it's a place where you can find beautiful beaches and people who are kind and cheerful.
Everyday, Alvaro works as an employee in a little restaurant in the city. He works around 9 hours a day and he believes he is getting ahead at work because he is responsible and honorable.
Alvaro is very grateful to the Kiva lenders and, thanks to their great support, he will be able to buy a computer which he needs because the classes at his university are about to start and he needs to have this technology to be able to do his work. In this way he will continue working to make his greatest dream come true: to have a professional career and his own business.
