Although Ignacio believes that he comes from the best place on earth, Bilbao, due to the food, landscape, and Athletic Club, the world is too big to get stuck forever in one place and there is not enough time to see everything. Ignacio attended Duesto University in Bilbao, Spain, where he received a Bachelors degree in Business Administration and a Masters degree in Management Development and Computer Systems After finishing university, one thing was clear to him: he wanted to work abroad, travel and meet incredible people. To that end, Ignacio has lived and worked in the Netherlands, Egypt, Peru and traveled in Ethiopia.

Ignacio is excited to serve as a Kiva Fellow in Nicaragua.
