Jhon Paul's story

Jhon, 22, lives in the city of Chincha noted for its hot weather and the joy of its residents. Because of his limited economic resources he was only able to study up to fifth grade of secondary school but would have liked to have studied Mechanical Engineering.

Day to day Jhon works as a mechanic’s helper in a small shop. He works about 9 hours daily and believes he’s getting ahead because he’s very responsible and above all meets his customers’ expectations.

Jhon is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help they’ve given him he will be able to buy hammers, pliers and wrenches, among other and supplies like paint and cement, among others to do some improvements to the house he lives in which will improve his quality of life and he will be able to have the tools needed to do his work and he will be able to continue striving to make his greatest dream reality: to attend university and be able to support his family so they can get ahead.
