Wilmer Kevin's story

Wilmer is a 21-year-old man. He is single and lives in the city of Ica with his parents and brothers. He is a very kind, hard-working and enthusiastic person and has a great desire to succeed. Thanks to his hard work and the support of his parents, Wilmer is studying medicine. He is in the second phase of his studies. He is a good student. In his free time, he likes to watch movies. From time to time, he cooks a delicious lomo saltado [strips of marinated sirloin and stirfried with vegetables] to share with his family. Wilmer decided on his own to work as a waiter in a restaurant in the city. He works with great dedication and determination. He works every day for about eight hours and says that it is going well for him because he is fast and treats people well. Wilmer is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to your help he will be able to buy his lab coat and supplies such as a stethoscope, gloves, and syringes. This way, Wilmer will have the necessary supplies for passing his studies. He will continue to work hard in order to achieve his dream of being a great doctor.
