Teobaldo's story

Teobaldo, 20, is single and lives in the city of Chincha with his parents and siblings. He is a very hard-working, joyful and enthusiastic young man who has a strong desire to excel. Regrettably, due to the need to work in order to support his parents, he has not been able to study for a professional career, but he would have greatly enjoyed doing so. In his free time he likes to relax while listening to a bit of music and on some occasions he cooks a delicious Carapulcra con Sopa Seca (Peruvian dish of noodles and stew) to share with his family. With much determination and enthusiasm, day by day Teobaldo works as a field worker in an agricultural business in his city. Every morning he begins his work in the early hours. He can work approximately 10 hours daily and he believes it is going well because of his good performance and the friendly treatment he offers to his clients. Teobaldo is very grateful for the Kiva lenders since, thanks to the help they offer him, he can do the finishing touches on his house such as stuccoing and painting his place. In this manner he hopes to be able to offer his family better security and well-being so that they live in an environment that is appropriate for their development. In this way he hopes to be able to continue striving and working so that he and his family can get ahead.
