Eustaquio Felipe
Eustaquio, 53, lives in the city of Ica with his spouse and young son. He’s a very kind, hardworking, enthusiastic person who very much wants to get ahead with his family. Unfortunately, because he needed to work and cover expenses he was unable to study a professional career but he would have liked to have studied civil engineering. In his free time he enjoys watching informative programs and news on television and sometimes cooks a delicious “Ají de Gallina” to share with his family.

Thanks to his enterprising spirit and support from his family, Eustaquio works in construction. He’s a master builder and starting very early in the morning spends about 10 hours daily at work. He can have an average of five customers per month. He is happy doing his work.

Eustaquio is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support provided he will be able to buy supplies like lumber, nails, buckets and rope, among others, for his work. In this way, Eustaquio will have the necessary tools on hand to do his work and be able to tend to more customers thus increasing his income which he hopes to use for his young son’s education and wellbeing.
