Pelayo
Pelayo is 44 years old and married to Urbana. They have three children and live in their own house. Initially, Pelayo made a living in agriculture but now he has a grocery store in the public market where he lives.

He started his business with little merchandise as a test in a small establishment, but when he achieved good profits he converted it into his principal livelihood. He has the pleasure of offering his customers, mostly housewives and restaurant managers, a wide variety of fresh produce, as well as the provisions and grains that are most commonly consumed. He manages to achieve a good profit through these products.

He feels very happy with how his business is developing, since his wife is responsible for attending to customers during peak hours and restocking the merchandise, in this manner ensuring a well-organized business. He has almost 24 years of experience in this field and through today he has been very motivated in achieving his long-term goals.

This is his second loan with Kiva and he is grateful for the financial support he receives to move forward. Additionally he promises to make his payments on time. On this occasion, he would like 4,000 nuevos soles to buy wholesale merchandise such as rice, grains, fresh produce, sacks of potatoes, among other things to maintain a well-stocked business.

Pelayo tiene 44 años es casado con Urbana y tiene 3 hijos con quienes vive en su casa propia. Inicialmente se dedicaba a la agricultura pero ahora tiene una tienda de comestibles en el mercado de abastos de su localidad. Se inició en este oficio con poca mercadería a manera de prueba y con un establecimiento sencillo, pero al tener buenas ganancias esta se convirtió en su principal sustento económico. Tiene el agrado de ofrecer a sus clientes quienes en su mayoría son amas de casa y encargados de restaurantes una buena variedad de verduras frescas, así como víveres y cereales de los mas consumidos logrando obtener una buena ganancia por estos productos. Se siente muy contento por como desarrolla su trabajo ya que su esposa se encarga de atender a los clientes apoyándola en horas punta y trasladando la mercadería a reemplazar logrando así tener un negocio bien organizado. Lleva casi 24 años de experiencia en el rubro y hasta hoy se siente muy motivado esperando cumplir sus objetivos a largo plazo. Este es su segundo préstamo con Kiva y se siente agradecido por el apoyo financiero que recibe para seguir adelante, además se compromete a pagar sus cuotas de manera puntual. En esta ocasión desea contar con 4,000 nuevos soles para la compra de su mercadería al por mayor como arroz, cereales, verduras frescas, sacos de papa, entre otros para mantener su negocio bien abastecido.
