Basilio Eleodoro
Basilio is a married man of 69 years of age. He is a car mechanic and he chose this kind of work as when very young he learned how to panel beat cars and repaint them and developed a vocation for the work.

Basilio is a determined, hardworking and very responsible man with a great desire to get ahead. Basilio has been doing this work since 1996. He earns about S/. 390 nuevos soles (PEN) as week. With the loan of S/. 2000 soles (PEN) which he will receive thanks to Kiva, Basilio will invest this loan in buying raw materials (carbudes, plates, paint, etc). Señor Basilio's dream is to have a more sofisticated workshop with good technology so that he can better attend his customers and give a first class service. His counselor thinks he is an excellent member and will make his repayments punctually.

Basilio lives and works in Ica, Peru. Ica is located in the Sechura Desert about four hours south of Lima, the country's capital, and is hailed by Peruvians as "The Land of the Sun." It is known in Peru for its frequent earthquakes (an 8.4 in 2001 and 8.0 in 2007), its production of grapes, asparagus, and olives, and perhaps most notably, as the source of Peruvian's traditional national drink, Pisco. In this hot, arid climate we find the member's home and business.
