Juan Eduardo's story

Juan is a 25 year old young man who lives in the city of Ica. The city is known for its warm and welcoming climate. It possesses various tourist attractions like the “Laguna de Huacachina”, the Ica lake. It is also well-known for cultivating grapes and cotton, among others.

Juan is a young man with a great desire to get ahead. That is why, with great effort, he managed to study the career of administration. Thanks to this, he managed to get employment at an institution in his city. With the fruit of his work, he is able to support his parents. Juan believes that he is getting ahead because he is responsible.

Juan is very grateful to the Kiva lenders. Thanks to their great help he will be able to buy materials to improve his parents’ house. Currently the door is made of corrugated metal, and it is not very safe. This way he will be able to give his parents a better quality of life. He will also be able to continue struggling to be able to make his biggest dream a reality, to have his own company and to be a great businessman.
