Vilcabamba, Ecuador - Jose

Vilcabamba Ecuador

It's important to remember how poor some of these people are. I met this boy Jose as he was walking home with a few loaves of bread for his family. He was the shoe shine boy in town. I photographed him as he stopped to look in the windows of the school, one after another. I could sense his longing to be in the classroom with the other children.

A friend that I made in Cuenca is doing important work with KIVA, an organization that helps people with small loans so they can get their businesses off the ground. Please read about the important work that they've been doing with people around the world.
