Diego Fernando
Diego is a 21-year-old man living in the city of Chincha with his spouse and little one-year-old son. Diego is a very kind, enthusiastic and hardworking person who with his spouse’s help puts all his efforts into moving his family forward. In his free time he enjoys relaxing listening to a little music and sometimes cooks a delicious “Carapulcra con Sopa Seca” to share with his family.

With much dedication, Diego works day to day as a laborer in a heavy cargo firm in his city. He works about 10 hours daily and feels good doing his work as a watchman and he believes that he does well because he’s esteemed for the good work he does and the kind way he treats others.

Diego is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help they’ve given him he will be able to add a room to his house since currently Diego and his family live in a little house made out of matting and sticks and during the winter when temperatures drop they are cold and suffer a lot because of the rain. In this way, Diego will be able to offer more safety and wellbeing to his family and in the not too distant future he’ll be able to have his house built completely.

About Caja Rural Señor de Luren

Caja Rural Señor de Luren is a microfinance institution based in Ica in southern Peru that primarily promotes the development of the country’s agricultural sector through lending. Today, it also offers credit for consumers, microenterprises and housing improvements, and has expanded its financial services to promote micro-savings and provide micro-insurance. This institution has been instrumental in helping borrowers recover from the devastating earthquake in the Ica region in 2007, and works with Peru’s National Bank to reach some of the poorest and most remote microfinance clients in the country.

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.
