Hector Carlos's story

Hector lost his father, but he lives with his mother and his little sister in the district of Huaycan. He gets up very early every day to cover the 3-hour trip it takes him to get from home to his learning center. He is an exemplary student, his half way to his degree, but his mother his having a hard time covering his expenses, so Hector would have to leave school, without financial support from Kiva's lenders. He is very close to beginning his paid apprenticeships, which will allow him to help his mother with home expenses. He believes that education is the main tool in order to grow and thrive, so he is very grateful to Kiva and its lenders for all the support they provide, so can finish school and get a job that will allow him to help his mom back home home and to also become a role model for his sister.
