Rolando Alcides
Rolando is a 45-year-old, happily married man. He lives in the town of Pucallpa with his wife and four small children, whom he loves dearly and who are his main reason for living. He is a friendly, hard-working and enthusiastic person who, together with his wife, dedicates all of his efforts to ensure that his family get ahead. Rolando was not able to study to become a professional because, from a very young age, he had to work, in order to help his parents with the household expenses. However, he would very much have liked to have been able to study to be a car mechanic. In his free time he likes to play football with his friends and neighbours, and sometimes his wife spoils him and cooks him delicious chicken with rice.

With a lot of determination and dedication, and thanks to the help of a friend, Rolando set up his small business cutting keys. He starts work early in the morning every day. He has about 10 hours of work, and thinks that his business is going well because of the quality of his work and the friendly way he deals with his customers.

Rolando is very grateful for the Kiva loans, as thanks to the help that they provide, he will be able to make some improvements to his home by painting and decorating it. In this way, Rolando hopes to provide a more adequate and safe environment, where his family can live safely. In this way, he will continue working and striving to achieve his dream of owning his own hardware store and of seeing his children grow up to be good professionals.

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.
