Hector Manuel's story

Hector lives in the tropical city of Tarapoto. He is a jovial and charismatic young man. Every day he puts in the effort to advance himself, working as a mechanic at a shop in his city. With the fruits of his labor, he is able to provide for his family with the support of his wife, who inspires him every day. Hector believes that he's good at what he does because he is responsible and careful.

Hector is thankful for the Kiva lenders. Thanks to the help they have provided, he will be able to improve his house, especially by buying basic household items, and improve his quality of life. This way he will be able to go on fighting to achieve his big dream: "passing on a profession to his son and improving his quality of life."
