Juan is the father of three children. Because of that, every day he heads out very early to work as a fisherman. He catches sardines, prochilodus, and catfish and sells them in the city harbor. With this work, he earns an income so that he can get his family ahead.

Juan is grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help they have given him, he will be able to buy materials to perform maintenance on his boat. He will be able to paint it and improve it, and at the same time he will buy fishing nets. In this way he will be able to have his tools and work in good conditions and can continue fighting to make his dream a reality: to have a bigger boat with all the fixings.
