Manuel Horacio's story

Manuel is a man of 30. He lives in the city of Chiclayo, in the district of Guadalupe. He is a very friendly, hard-working, and enthusiastic person who has a great desire to achieve. Thanks to his efforts and the support of his parents, Manuel was able to study the technical program in electricity that he wanted. In his free time he likes to play soccer, and sometimes he cooks a very delicious pasta dish to share with his family. On his own initiative, and with great effort and dedication, Manuel works as a technician in a transportation business in his city. He works every day, doing electrical installation and maintenance work on vehicles. Manuel can work for about 10 hours and believes that it is going well for him because of his good performance and because of his friendly dealings with others. Manuel is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to the help offered he will be able to complete the improvement of his home, since he wants to buy construction materials and cover the costs of labor to progress with the construction of a room. Thus he will continue working and striving to achieve his great dream of having a safe and proper house.
