A loan of $400 helped to build a bathroom.

Alex Wuilmer's story

Alex is 35 years old. He lives in the city of Pisco, which is known for its warm and hospitable climate, as well as its tourist attractions like “Las Islas Ballestas” (The Ballestas Islands) and “El Candelabro de Paracas” (The Paracas Candelabra). He lives with his wife and mother, as they are supporting him with a place to live. With much enthusiasm and dedication, Alex has worked for 2 years as a taxi driver. From this work he is able to help out with the household expenses. He works around 9 hours per day and can have up to 15 customers daily; he believes that he is successful in his work because he is a fighter, and above all because he has a strong desire to get ahead.

Alex is very grateful to the Kiva lenders. Thanks to the great help that they have offered, he can make improvements in his home, such as the addition of a bathroom. Currently, it only has one latrine, and his mother became ill because of this. He will be able to offer a better quality of life to his family, so he can continue working to make his greatest dream a reality: to give them a good quality of life and above all build a home for his mother.
