Joel's story

Joel is a hard-working young man; he is 25 years old. He lives in Parcona with his wife and young son for whom he works tirelessly every day to provide him with a better future and a good education.

For over 2 years he has worked in a farm in the area. He is a very responsible and enterprising person and has a lot of knowledge about the plants hence he is able to contribute to cultivating high quality products.

Joel is grateful with Kiva lenders because with their support he will be able to buy his wife a stove. That way she can cook better dishes and most of all for her safety, since their previous stove was very old and it was dangerous to cook on it. Once he has this peace of mind, Joel will continue to strive to accomplish his greatest dream: “To have his own house”
