Rolando Alejandro's story

Rolando is an only child; his parents are separated and he lives with his mother in Lima. She is his sole caretaker, and has a small shoe sales business which is their household's only source of income. Rolando is starting a technical degree in Electronics, and the economic problems at home mean that even at his young age, he would have to stop studying in order to start working if it weren't for the support of Kiva lenders.

Rolando wants to study, finish his technical degree and become a professional so that he can support his mother, who has worked so hard for him. Rolando would like to thank Kiva lenders for the support they are providing to him and to all the young people with few resources to help them study without problems and become better people.
