Pedro Andres
Pedro is a 57-year-old single man who lives in the city of Ica, in the district of Santiago. He is a very friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic person with a strong desire to succeed. Unfortunately, Pedro was not able to study for a professional career as, from a very young age, he had to work to help his parents with the household expenses. In his free time he likes playing football with his friends and neighbours, and occasionally takes the opportunity to eat a delicious ceviche [a seafood dish] with his friends.

For a number of years Pedro has worked as a labourer on a farm in his city. Every day, in the very early hours of the morning, he begins his work and can work for about 12 hours. He believes that his business is going well due to his hard work, as he enjoys his job.

Pedro is very grateful to Kiva lenders, as with the help he receives he will be able to make improvements to his home. He wants to be able to finish off his bathroom by installing a toilet, painting and laying flooring. This will mean that Pedro's home will be in a better, adequate, safe and healthy condition, which will improve his own and his family's well-being.

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.
