A loan of $375 helped to pay for school fees.


Manuel Roberto's story

Manuel is a young man of 19 who lives in the town of Ica, which has a warm and welcoming climate. He does his utmost to improve his lot in life and, to this end, sells construction materials, an activity that enables him to pay for school fees, as he is attending a school that prepares students who wish to enter university. He wants to study systems engineering, a career that is very appealing to him. His greatest wish is to make his parents proud. Manuel is very grateful to Kiva lenders since, thanks to their tremendous help, he will be able to pay for school fees, which will enable him to be better prepared for his entry into university. This way, he will keep improving his lot in life and working to make his greatest dream come true: "I want to become a systems engineer and be able to help my family have a better life".
