Hilario Tomas's story

Hilario is a 58-year old man who is single and lives in the city of Camaná. He is a person who is very friendly, hard-working, enthusiastic and has a great desire to succeed. Hilario has always been a fighter and has worked from a young age. Sadly, he was not able to study for a professional career, but he would have liked very much to do so. In his free time, he likes to go fishing and, on occasion, cook the very delicious Lomo Saltado to share with family and friends. By his own initiative, and with much effort and enthusiasm, Hilario put into motion his small business making and selling cinderblocks. He works every day starting from the early morning hours, and can work approximately 10 hours per day. He thinks things are going well because of his dedication and the friendly service he provides his customers. Hilario is very grateful for the Kiva loans since, thanks to the help they provide, he will be able to make improvements to his house. He would like to paint, plaster and make small repairs so that his home is in more secure and adequate condition, which will provide further well-being. In this manner, he will keep working and putting forth effort in order to get ahead.
