A loan of $1,525 helped to add a room to his house.


Diego Fernando's story

Diego is a 21-year-old man living in the city of Chincha with his spouse and little one-year-old son. Diego is a very kind, enthusiastic and hardworking person who with his spouse’s help puts all his efforts into moving his family forward. In his free time he enjoys relaxing listening to a little music and sometimes cooks a delicious “Carapulcra con Sopa Seca” to share with his family.

With much dedication, Diego works day to day as a laborer in a heavy cargo firm in his city. He works about 10 hours daily and feels good doing his work as a watchman and he believes that he does well because he’s esteemed for the good work he does and the kind way he treats others.

Diego is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help they’ve given him he will be able to add a room to his house since currently Diego and his family live in a little house made out of matting and sticks and during the winter when temperatures drop they are cold and suffer a lot because of the rain. In this way, Diego will be able to offer more safety and wellbeing to his family and in the not too distant future he’ll be able to have his house built completely.
