He is a very friendly, hardworking, and enthusiastic person. He and his spouse dedicate all of their efforts to helping their family get ahead. Unfortunately, due to a lack of economic resources and the fact that he needed to begin working at a very young age, Jesus couldn't study a professional degree.

In his spare time, he likes to distract himself by watching TV, and sometimes cooks a delicious dish of beans and meat to share with his family. At his own initiative, and with a lot of hard work and dedication, Jesus works in agriculture. He has a small piece of land where he plans purple corn. Jesus works every day in the fields and can work for approximately 8 hours. He thinks it is going well for him due to his experience and the friendly way in which he treats others.

Jesus is very appreciative of Kiva lenders, since thanks to their help he will be able to buy manure and fertilizers for his farming. In this way, Jesus hopes to have a good harvest. He will continue to work and push himself to achieve his great dream of having a bigger harvest.
