Ronald Percy's story

Percy is a 25-year-old young man. He lives in the city of Ica, which is known for its warm and welcoming atmosphere and especially its agriculture, including the cultivation of grapes, cotton, asparagus, and other crops.

Percy is a very hardworking young man, and above all, he has a strong desire to get ahead. With great effort, he managed to earn a technical degree in mechanics. Thanks to that education, he has a small welding business, but he also really likes agriculture; he has a small parcel on which he has planted corn. He works about nine hours a day and he feels that it is going well because he really likes what he does and above all, because of his desire to succeed.

Percy is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, because thanks to the help they have given him, he will be able to buy a bigger welding machine. This will allow him to be able to do his welding work better and to have a better income so that he can continue struggling toward making his greatest dream a reality: to have his own house.
