Luis Gonzalo
Luis, 22, is single living in Chincha with his parents and siblings. He’s a very kind, hardworking, enthusiastic person with a strong wish for self-improvement. Unfortunately, due to the lack of economic resources and the need to start work at a very young age, Luis was unable to study business administration like he’d wanted to. In his free time he enjoys listening to music and on some occasions cooks a delicious fried chicken to share with his family.

On his own initiative and with much effort and dedication, Luis works as a caretaker at a local parochial center. He works doing cleaning chores, painting and anything else needed for the proper maintenance of the parochial center. Luis works every day for about 10 hours and believes he does well because of the good way he does his work and the kind way he treats others.

Luis is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support provided he will be able to do some improvements to one of the rooms at home. He wants to seal the walls, paint and install flooring because the room is currently in bad shape. In this way, Luis and his family will have greater security and well-being and he will continue to work and strive toward reaching his great dream: to have a house of his own.
