Piero Abdon
Piero is 28 years old, single, and lives in the town of Pucalipa. He is a very nice, hard-working, and enthusiastic person, who always wants to do his best. Unfortunately, due to his economic situation and the need to start working at a very young age, Piero was unable to study carpentry, which is what he would have liked to do. In his spare time, he likes to cook a delicious smoked fish dish to share with his family. On his own initiative, sparing no efforts, and with admirable dedication, Piero sells plastics and household items, such as plastic thread, packing tape, glue, brushes, brooms, buckets, and other items. Piero sells door to door in a small radius. He works about ten hours a day and attributes his success to his efforts and his amiability towards customers. Piero is very grateful to Kiva lenders, since, thanks to their help, he will be able to build a small storage room inside his house, which will be very useful to keep his stock for longer. Thus, he will have more products to sell at any time and will be able to tend to more customers. He wants to keep working with all his might towards his great dream of having a big shop.
