Thanks to a gift from my daughter for my birthday I was able to choose another person to help through Kiva.
Here is the person I choose and his story:
"Cesar’s parents are separated. He currently lives with his mother and his younger brother. They do not have any type of support from their father. His mother works in the area of public cleaning in the municipality where she lives. Her salary barely covers the household food expenses. Therefore, Cesar would not be able to go to school without the support of the Kiva lenders.
Cesar would be the first in his family to take higher education courses. Doing so would be a great achievement for him and for his whole family. He wishes to be a great professional and to work in order to be able to help his family. He will be an example for his younger brother, and he will help him to be able to follow his footsteps in the future.
Cesar is grateful to the Kiva lenders for all of the support they provide him with so that he is able to fulfill his dream of going to school and to soon become a successful professional.
He believes that the support that each Kiva lender provides is a great show of generosity and of love for their fellow man. It causes a large, positive ripple effect in the development of those most in need."
