Pedro's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to acquire new computers and printers to expand his service and cover actual demand.


Pedro's story

This is Pedro, a modest, reserved, and enterprising 34-year-old man who possess a strong desire to get ahead.

Pedro resides with his family in Ermera municipality, where he has a business renting computers and printers, a very common activity in the zone since most homes lack sufficient resources to acquire one.

Pedro has been a client of KIF with an excellent habit of repayment (first time to post on Kiva's website) and now wishes to apply for a new loan in order to acquire new computers and printers to expand his service and cover actual demand.

His dream is to be able to improve his family's conditions of life, construct a prosperous future, and generate employment.
