Roberto Antonio's story

Roberto is 21 years old. With a great deal of hard work he managed to study for a career as a chemical engineer and as a result he now works in a small firm in his city. This enables him to cover his living expenses and keep making progress. Roberto thinks his work is going well because he is responsible and especially because he is very careful in what he does.

Roberto is grateful to the Kiva lenders since with the help they have given him he will be able to buy materials to make improvements to the house he lives in, especially putting down a concrete floor, plastering the walls and other things. In this way he will be able to improve his quality of life and strive to make his big dream a reality: to have his own house.
