Jesús is a young student. He lives with six other people – his parents, siblings, and two nephews. Jesús is the first one in his family who has been able to move on to further education following high school; this is thanks to Kiva.
Jesús lives in one of the poorest districts in Lima. His father works as a warehouse operative while his mother is a housewife. The family’s income is very low. Jesús needs Kiva’s support in order to continue studying as he does not have the financial means that will allow him to finish his degree in computer networking systems.
Jesús really likes his degree as it a modern subject and there is a high demand for people with his skills. This degree will be good for Jesús as it is a good profession and he can help his family to move forward.
Jesús thinks that the Kiva programme is a great support for students who want to do better but who cannot pay for their studies and often have to give up their dreams. Link to his fund: http://www.kiva.org/lend/868542
Mrs. Dam, 37 years old, lives with her husband, son and daughter in Mai Son district, Son La province. She has been involved in the M7-MFI program from its start.
