Percy Washintong
Percy lives in the city of Carhuaz. He is a hard-working man, chiefly because he lives alongside his two children, ages 12 and 7, whom he supports with the income from his small jewel-selling business. He works around 9 hours per day. Percy feels that his business is moving forward because he is very responsible and, above all, because he wants to get ahead in life.

Percy is very grateful to Kiva's small lenders as thanks to the help they have provided, he will be able to purchase more gems and thus have a greater variety of products to offer. He will continue to fight to realize his greatest dream: to provide his children with a profession.
