Hugo Ruben
Hugo, 38, lives in the city of Chincha; a city noted for having a hot, welcoming climate and for being the birthplace of great Peruvian sports heroes. Its residents are very good cooks and prepare very delicious dishes.

Hugo is the father of a ten-year-old son who he loves very much and above all works very hard to provide with a proper life that’s full of love. When he has any free time available, Hugo likes to play soccer with his son and also sometimes very much enjoys eating one of his favorite dishes, the very delicious “Arroz Chaufa.”

Hugo works day to day as an orthodontist in a local clinic. He works about 10 hours daily and can see up to ten patients daily. He believes he does well at work because he’s very patient with his patients and above all because he’s responsible and follows through.

Hugo is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help they’ve given him he will be able to build a small room and his kitchen which is currently of adobe. In this way he will be able to give his family improved quality of life and continue striving towards making his greatest dream a reality: to finish building his house and provide a good education for his son.

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.
