Oscar
Oscar is 34 years old and married to Yudy, who has a job and is mother to their only son, who is three years old. This family lives together in their own privately owned house. Oscar makes a living building homes in the local area. However, because he is very well-known, sometimes people ask him to work in neighbouring cities. Oscar started this business with his own initiative over ten years ago, as he already had the necessary knowledge to do it. He needed also to be able to have his own income so that he did not have to rely solely on another business. So, seeing his good results, Oscar is saving his profits as, in the future, he would like to open a grocery store so as to provide his children with a better quality of living. This will be Oscar's first loan with Kiva and he is very grateful for the financial support that he is receiving in order to get ahead. Oscar will buy building tools such as hammers, measuring tapes, sledgehammers and more with this loan of 4000 Nuevo Soles.

Oscar, de 34 años de edad, esta casado con Yudy, quien es empleada y madre de su único hijo de 03 años , juntos viven en su casa propia. La actividad que realiza Oscar es la construcción de viviendas por zona, pero como es muy conocido a veces es solicitado en ciudades aledañas. Se inició hace más de 10 años, por iniciativa propia, ya que contaba con conocimientos necesarios para iniciarse en está actividad y necesitaba contar con sus propios ingresos para así no depender únicamente de una empresa. Por tanto, viendo los buenos resultados que tiene, está ahorrando sus ganancias pues desea en un futuro abrir una bodega de abarrotes para dar una mejor calidad de vida a sus hijos. Por tanto éste será su primer préstamo con Kiva y está agradecido por el apoyo financiero que recibe para salir adelante. Con el monto solicitado de 4000 nuevos soles, comprará herramientas de construcción como martillos, combas, winchas, clavos , entre otros.
