Paulo Cesar's story

Paulo Cesar comes from a home where his parents are separated. He lives with his mother who works as a cleaning woman in someone's home for which she receives a small salary. She is the only one who supports them as his father hardly contributes any money. Paulo Cesar is the youngest of 4 siblings, none of whom is a professional. This is why there are great hopes and expectations that he will be able to complete his studies.

He is a great student with a very good academic performance, and thanks to his efforts he will be the recipient of a scholarship provided by a private company. But this will be just for the fourth cycle and he is now in the second. Without the help of Kiva lenders to cover these two cycles he will have to abandon his dreams of improving himself. He needs this help and this is why he is requesting and is grateful for Kiva's help, pointing out that he will continue to study very hard to keep up his grades so he will be able to enjoy the previously mentioned scholarship.

Paulo Cesar dreams of being the first professional in his family, opening a heavy machine repair shop, and helping his mother and his family get ahead.
