Luis Enrique's story

Luis is a 27-year-old young man. He lives with his parents in the warm and lovely city of Guadalupe, which is known for its agriculture, in particular the cultivation of rice and lemons, among other things, and also because it has a diverse cuisine. Due to a lack of financial resources, Luis was only able to study through primary school, but he would have liked to have had a university career very much.

Every day Luis works in his small business selling mattresses. He works about 9 hours a day and with the fruit of his labors he supports his parents with their living expenses. Luis believes that he is getting ahead because he is very friendly and above all because he has a great desire to get ahead.

Luis is very grateful to the Kiva lenders as thanks to the help they have provided he will be able to buy more mattresses wholesale and offer them to his clients, as he has various requests. In this way, his earnings will improve and he will be able to keep striving to make his greatest dream a reality: "To be a prosperous businessman and to be able to study for a university career."
