Eusebio Eraclio
Eusebio is 50, but has the spirit of young man of 20. He lives in the city of Ica, a generous land noted for its warm climate at any time of year. Eusebio is married, and he and his wife have four children, ages 22, 24, 19, and 15. All are in school, and with a lot of effort on the part of both he and his wife, he is helping them get ahead in life. Currently they are at university, except for the youngest, who is in fourth year of secondary education.

As a good Peruvian, he loves our cooking, especially his favorite dish, "Tallarín Saltado" (noodles sauteed with tomatoes, onions, and soy sauce).

Eusebio studied Music, not only as a career, but also because it is his passion.

At the present time, Eusebio plays music in our city's cemetery. His faithful ally in his business is his accordion, with which he plays countless melodies. He works around six hours daily, depending on the number of people who come to the cemetery.

The reason he does it, he tells us, is that it is very moving to see people burying their family members, or remembering the year of their passing. But he feels that with his music he can aleviate in part, the pain and sadness that they feel. Sometimes he has cried while he was playing his music, but life goes on, and one has to move forward.

He thinks that because of the sensitivity he has, it is going well for him in his business; he understands the pain and suffering that his customers are going through, and that is why he has work.

Eusebio is very happy, and very grateful to the Kiva lenders, as thanks to their help he will be able to undetake the paperwork necessary to obtain his certification as a music teacher. With this step forward, he will be able to teach music, and so earn greater income to improve his quality of life. As well, he will be able to save, so that he will be able to fulfill his great dream: "That his children become professionals, and to start a livestock business."
