Luis Osvaldo's story

Osvaldo is 29 years old and lives in Chimoré, department of Cochabamba. He is a plumber by profession and people from his city hire him constantly. Osvaldo is a modest person, and he was always used to work the land.

A while ago, Osvaldo used to drink a lot and he lost all he had. His friends spoiled him and when he needed help to continue working these friends did not appear. That's how Osvaldo learned to be wary of others. Now he lives only for his family and is entirely dedicated to work in order to not bump into friends that destabilize his welfare. He is saving to make a modest construction in his plot for his family's comfort.

He heard about Kiva loans and decided to request help to provide capital for the purchase of chickens for sale. He wants to generate income, his dream is to see his children finish school and pursue higher education for their own benefit.
