A loan of $1,075 helped to build a room.


Juan Alberto's story

Juan is a 21 year old man. He is single and lives in the city of Ica with his parents and siblings. He is very hardworking, enthusiastic, and dedicates all of his efforts to getting ahead. Thanks to his efforts and his parents’ support, he was able to study for a technical degree in gastronomy. By his own initiative, Juan works as a field laborer at a farm in the city. He works every day for about ten hours and believes that it is going well because of his dedication and hard work. Juan is very thankful for the Kiva loans because, thanks to the help they offer, he will build a room in his home. In this way, he and his siblings will have an adequate, safe place to rest. Thus, he will continue working and striving to achieve his big dream of becoming a great chef.
