A loan of $775 helped to buy pork and beer.


Edwin's story

Edwin belongs to the bank “Ahorro es Progreso” in the district of Saylla in the city of Cusco in Peru. He is married and has one young son. He runs a restaurant where he mainly sells chicharrones, a fried snack made from pork. This delicious dish is very popular throughout the district.

He needs to invest in his business because a major festival is about to take place in his district. All of the chicharrón vendors in the community are invited to sell their products. He will buy pork and beer for this festival.

His greatest dream is to be able to build his own house so he can provide more stability for his family. He thanks Kiva for helping him to develop and maintain his business and thus be able to support his family.
