Humberto's story

Humberto is 55 years old living with his wife who supports him in everything he does. They have six children together and their house is located in the city of Chincha, a city noted for its hot climate, beautiful beaches and also for being the birthplace of great Peruvian sports heroes. It’s also well known for its cuisine; its residents are known for preparing very tasty dishes and one of his favorites is the very delicious “Carapulcra con sopa seca” [pork with noodles].

With much dedication, Humberto works as a bricklayer. He works about 9 hours per day depending on the type of construction job he has. He believes that he does well in his business because he does good jobs with good finishings.

Humberto is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help they’ve given him he will be able to buy a cement mixer which will allow him to have a very necessary work tool to provide better service to his customers which will make it possible for him to continue working and striving toward making his dream a reality: “To have contracts with large firms.”
