Geraldo Pablo
Geraldo, 34, lives in the city of Pucallpa with his beloved wife and two small children, who are his reason for living. He is very friendly, hardworking, and enthusiastic and dedicates all his effort to helping his family get ahead. Sadly, Geraldo lacked resources and needed to pay expenses, so he wasn't able to study to be a police officer, as he wished. He likes to play soccer with his friends in his free time and cook a delicious garlic chicken dish to share with his family.

On his initiative and with perseverance, Geraldo runs a small grocery store where he works for about 10 hours each day from early morning. He enjoys his work and believes the store prospers because he offers affordable prices and good service to his customers.

Geraldo thanks the Kiva lenders, whose support will let him buy wholesale merchandise such as groceries, beverages, and sweets so that he can expand his inventory and service more customers. He will keep working very hard to achieve his great dream to own a house.
