Nilson, 30, lives with his partner and their two-year-old son, whom he loves very much and for whom he works hard to so that he can have a dignified life full of love. In his free time, Nilson really enjoys taking his son for a walk or eating one of his favorite local dishes, a delicious fried rice with vegetables.

Nilson works diligently as a bricklayer for nine hours each day. His hours may be longer and depend on the size of the project. When there is no construction work available, he drives a motor taxi to support for his family. He says things are going well because he is responsible and because he strives to give his family the better life he wishes for them.

Nilson thanks the Kiva lenders whose help will allow him to improve his house. He will build a small room and repair cracks in walls damaged by regular earthquakes. This will make his family's living conditions better and let him keep striving to achieve his dream: "to have his own well-built home and give his son a good education."
