Wilson
Wilson, 25 years old, is a hardworking man. He lives with his wife, Angélica and his daughter, however very soon another member of the family will arrive because his wife is pregnant. They have been living in a rented house for five years. Wilson painstakingly makes bricks, a business on which he depends for household income. He notes that he makes them with his brother-in-law, since they have a partnership and work together.

“My principal source of income centers on selling thousands of bricks to businesses and government units. In this way I make more profits and can sell in larger quantities,” he states. In all this time he has had a lot of competition because the sand in the area will be exhausted within a few years. That is why he wants to begin raising cows and to increase their numbers for the time when he has to stop producing bricks.

This is his second loan from Kivá and he is grateful for the support provided him so that he will be able to continue investing in the progress of his business. In addition he is committed to being punctual in re-paying his loan. Wilson will invest the S/. 4,500 in the purchase of wood and other products in order to continue producing bricks because he wants to make the most of the sunny season to make more bricks.
