A loan of $400 helped to buy a machine to bend metal.


Percy's story

Percy belongs to the communal bank "Señor de los Temblores II" in the city of Cusco, Peru. He is 34 years old, married, and has two children. He works making all kinds of metal structures, an activity he has been doing for many years, and which is the main source of income in his household.

Percy is applying for a loan to buy a machine that will allow him to bend iron tubes, which will save him time and give his work a better finish. Percy thanks KIVA for allowing him to outfit his workshop and improve his work.
