Victor Cirilo's story

Víctor is a 38-year-old man who is happily married and who lives in the city of Chincha with his wife and their two small children whom he loves and who are his principal cause in life. He is a very nice, hard-working and enthusiastic person who, together with his wife, dedicates all his effort to moving his family forward.

Regrettably, due to the need to work he could not study for a professional career, but he would have greatly enjoyed being able to do so. In his free time he enjoys sharing pleasant moments with his family and on some occasions he cooks a delicious Duck Rice dish to pamper them.

With much determination and enthusiasm, Victor was able to start his small business selling groceries. He also works as a master builder and at night he offers taxi services. He can work approximately 14 hours per day and he believes it is going well for him due to his determination, dedication, and because of the friendly treatment he offers his clients.

Victor is very grateful for the Kiva borrowers, since thanks to the help they offer he will be able to renovate and get general maintenance done on his vehicle. With this done, Victor can depend on his work tool being in better condition, and with it he can transport his masonry materials and offer taxi services. He hopes to be able to increase his income, which will help him greatly to ensure the education and well-being of his young ones, since he dreams of seeing them become good professionals and good men.
