Antonio Guillermo
Antonio, 60, is married and with his wife has three children who are adults but whom he loves very much, especially because they have given him some wonderful grandchildren. Antonio's home is in the Santiago district, known for agriculture, especially grapes, asparagus, and other products. There are also a lot of agricultural export companies that give many jobs to the people of the district.

When he has some free time, Antonio likes to watch television and occasionally he loves to eat one of his favorite dishes, the delicious Arroz Chaufa [fried rice]. He learned what it is to make a living by the sweat of his brow from a very young age because his parents were very modest and he needed to work to help them.

Antonio works nine hours every day on an agricultural farm and with the fruit of his labor is able to pay for his household expenses. He believes it's going well for him in his business because he's very responsible and always does his job with great pleasure.

Antonio is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to their help he'll be able to help his child with the down payment to buy a house, because currently he only lives on straw mats. This way he'll be able to improve the quality of life of his grandchildren, whom he loves very much, and be able to realize part of his big dream: "To give his grandchildren a good quality of life."
