Julio Cesar's story

Julio is a young man of 22. He lives in the city of Pisco, which is known for its warm and inviting climate and its beautiful landscape, which attract many visitors year round. Julio is a young man with a real drive to get ahead. Each day he works hard to make progress, particularly because he helps support his parents with household expenses because they do not have a lot of income.

Day to day, Julio is an agricultural worker on a farm in the city. He works around nine hours a day. He believes he will come out ahead because he is very responsible and strives to perform his work well.

Julio is very grateful for the support that Kiva lenders are offering him, because thanks to the help they have given him, he will be able to buy construction materials like cement, metal, sand, tiles, among others. This way, he will be able to make improvements to his parents' home and give them a better quality of life, so he can continue to strive to realize his greatest dream: to finish the construction of his parents house and be able to study in a university.
