Javier Antonio's story

Javier is a 31-year-old man. He is single and lives in the city of Pisco. He is a very kind, hard-working, and enthusiastic person who has a great desire for self-improvement. Unfortunately, due to a lack of economic resources and the necessity to work from very young to help his parents, Javier was not able to study for a professional degree in Business Administration. In his free time he likes to play soccer, and in some occasions he barbecues some very tasty food to share with his family. Through his own initiative, with much determination and dedication, Javier works as a security officer in a commercial business in his city. He works every day for approximately 10 hours and believes that it is going well for him because of his responsibility and the kind treatment that he provides to everyone. Javier is very thankful to the Kiva lenders since thanks to the help provided he will be able to purchase groceries and drinks, which will serve him to stock the small business selling groceries that he wishes to open. Additionally, he will buy a refrigerator to sell cold drinks. With this, Javier will be able to serve more customers, and so he will continue working and making an effort to achieve his greatest dream of owning his own home.
