Cecilio's story

Our member is Cecilio. He belongs to the communal bank "Tercer Milenio" in the province of Urubamba in Cusco, Peru. Our member, along with his brother, took a chance on the construction business some time ago. Together they started a business of manufacturing cement blocks or concrete bricks for the construction and building of buildings. Cecilio, thanks to the growth of this business, has been able to increase his economic profits and in this way, improved his family's whole quality of life, giving a better education to his children so that they will have a better future. Cecilio will invest his loan to buy the raw material that will allow him to produce his bricks. In this case, he will buy cement and crushed stone.
Cecilio's big dream is to grow his business and develop it as a construction consulting firm at a regional level.
Cecilio thanks KIVA for allowing him to develop his work and to continue growing more each time.
