A loan of $4,375 helped to pay for his technical studies in automotive mechanics.

Peter Jeremy's story

Peter comes from a broken home and lives alone with his mother in the populous Comas district of Lima. She has been both father and mother to him since Peter's father abandoned them and never financially contributed to support their home.

His mother works as a seamstress in various workshops, and she has managed to get ahead with great effort and sacrifice for her son, giving him an education as far as possible. Unfortunately, she is now going through a bad time and can no longer finance Peter's studies. Without the support of Kiva lenders, Peter will have to give up his technical studies.

He wishes to finish his studies of automotive mechanics and to have his own workshop in the future, where he can provide work for young people like him who are eager to learn and get ahead. This is why he is very grateful for all the support that Kiva lenders can provide for him to continue his studies and make his dream a reality.

He wants to pay back his mother for all the sacrifices she has made to help him, to help her financially, and to give her a decent life.
