Manuel Ivan
Manuel, 27, is a single man living in the city of Pisco which is notable for its hot climate and beautiful beach. Manuel is a very cheerful, enthusiastic, hardworking person who has a strong drive for self-improvement. Unfortunately, because he needed to work to cover his expenses, he wasn’t able to study a professional career but would have liked to have studied Accounting. He likes to spend some of his free time playing sports and sometimes cooks a very delicious “Arroz con Pato” [rice with duck] to share with his parents and siblings.

On his own initiative and thanks to support from his parents, Manuel has worked as a security guard for several years in a firm in the city. He works about 12 hours daily. Manuel is happy with his work since he’s held in high regard because of his good work and the kind, respectful way he treats others.

Manuel is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help they’ve given him he will buy supplies like rush matting, stalks, posts, lumber and wire to replace the roof and rear fence at his house. In this way Manuel will have a safer house that’s in better condition until he reaches his dream of building his house with adequate, resistant materials.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
