Edgar Isaias's story
Edgar is a 20 year old young man, he lives next to his parents whom he loves dearly, in the city of Chincha. Chincha is a city known for its warm climate but overall because of its variety of delicious food. Edgar is a construction worker and works 9 hours a day, from the fruits of his labor he helps out his parents with household expenses since they have little income. He believes his good fortune has come from the proper treatment he gives his customers and aside from the fact that it is hard labor, he does it willingly and with intent to get ahead. Edgar is thankful for the support Kiva lenders have been able to offer him; with this help he will be able to purchase wood for his job. He currently has to rent the wood he uses and with this purchase he would have the tools needed to continue working towards his dream of one day having his own construction company.
