Luis Enrique
Luis, 21, lives in the city of Chincha with his wife and small son who he loves dearly and who are his main motivation in life. He is a very kind, hard-working, enthusiastic person who, together with his wife, works hard to provide for his family. Unfortunately, due to a lack of economic resources and the need to work from a very young age, Luis was unable to get a Business Administration degree as he would have liked. In his free time he enjoys spending time with his family and sometimes even cooks a delicious fried rice to share with them.

On his own initiative and with much hard work and dedication, Luis works as a security guard for a municipal company in his city. He provides surveillance and citizen safety, working an average ten hours a day. He enjoys his work and believes it is going well because he works hard and is kind to others.

Luis is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to you he will be able to renovate his house. He wants to install floor covering and put up a fence around the back of the house using adequate, strong materials. This will allow him to continue working and striving toward his goal of having a nicer home to provide more safety and well being for his family.

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.
