Wilson Arturo's story

The man in this photo is Mr. Wilson, a man that is constantly progressing. One of his dreams is to purchase land to build his own house. Mr. Wilson wakes up each morning with a good attitude that helps him continue growing as a businessman and a person.
Actually, Mr. Wilson sells grain. This business allows him to earn about 30 soles a day. He told us that his sister taught him this business. He was very glad to learn the business, as it allows him to improve his quality of life. Thanks to the loans from KIVA, he was able to buy more grain and sell it to his regular customers. In this way he was able to grow his business.
He lives in Camaná, which is located in the south of the country. This city enjoys its location next to the Pacific Ocean. Wilson is a hardworking and enterprising young man. He enjoys listening to music in his free time. He also knows that Peru is known to have the most delicious food in the world. The food he likes the most is roasted duck.
