Jaime Rufino
Jaime, 29, is a single man that lives in the city of Ica. He is a kind, hardworking and enthusiastic person, with a strong will to succeed. Unfortunately, due to the lack of economic resources and because he had to work since he was young, Jaime could not study Mechanics. During his free time, he enjoys cooking a delicious “rice with chicken” to share it with his family.

He took the initiative to work as a mason, something he does with commitment and dedication. He does different types of works in houses, rooms, etc. Jaime starts working early in the morning, every day, and does it for approximately ten hours. During the weekends, he works as a taxi driver. Jaime likes his job and believes that he does well because he offers good prices and is kind to others.

Jaime feels grateful to Kiva lenders, since with the help he received he will be able to buy things he needs for his job, such as wood, a wheelbarrow and a hammer. These things will be very useful to continue with his works. He will continue working hard in order to make his dream come true: to have a house of his own.
