Jose Alberto's story

Jose is a young worker. He is 53 years old and lives in Yarinacocha with his family. He has been working for more than a year in the municipality where he lives. It’s going very well because he is a person who has a drive to get ahead and he always puts effort and enthusiasm into everything he does. His biggest motivation is his family and that is why he constantly strives to improve his quality of life.

Jose is grateful to Kiva lenders because with their help he is able to make some repairs to his house such as paint the walls, and fix the roof and floors so his family can feel more comfortable and improve their quality of life. He will continue striving to get ahead and fulfill his biggest dream: “To have his own business.”
