Eusebio Antonio's story

Eusebio is a 61-year-old man, who is happily married. He lives in Chincha with his wife and 2 children, who he loves. They are his reason for living. Unfortunately, because of a lack of economic resources and a need to work to support himelf, Eusebio could not study a professional career, but he has always wished that he could. In his free time, he likes to watch the news on television and sometimes cooks a delicious Carapulcra with Sopa Seca.

With a lot of determination and enthusiasm, Eusebio works offering transportation services. He has a mototaxi that he uses for work. Every day, he starts work in the very early morning hours, when he leaves to travel the city streets in search of passengers. Eusebio can work an average of 12 hours a day, and he believes that he does well because of the friendly and respectful way he treats his customers.

Eusebio is very grateful to the Kiva borrowers, since thanks to their help, he will be able to improve his home. He hopes to do the cementing, painting, and installation commissioning; In this way, Eusebio will have his home in better condition, since it is currently made of reed panels and adobe. He hopes to continue working and striving so that he and his family can get ahead.
