Salvador Jordan's story

Salvador comes from a family where the parents were separated. Both his father and mother got into new relationships, and neither of them took charge of raising him. He lives in Lima with his paternal grandparents who have known how to make up for the lack of affection that he suffered after the parting of his parents. Due to their advanced age, his grandparents do not work. The only income that they receive is from renting out part of their home as a commercial space. This does not generate enough income to cover the educational expenses of young Salvador, which is why it would not be possible for him to continue to study without the support of the Kiva lenders.

Salvador's grandparents are proud of him, because he has a desire to excel even in spite of all of the difficulties that he has faced from the time he was very young. He wants to complete his education and work for a great company so that he can repay his grandparents for everything that they have given him. He is grateful to the Kiva lenders for all of the support they are providing so that he can achieve his dreams.
