Orlandine's story

Orlandine is a 30-year-old man who lives in the city of Cañete, in the Imperial district, with his wife and small 6-year-old son whom he loves and are his main motive in life. He is a very kind, hard-working, and enthusiastic person who, together with his wife, works as hard as he can to get his family ahead. Unfortunately, Orlandine could not study to get a prefessional career because from a very young age he had to work to help his parents.

With much determination, dedication, and thanks to the support from his family, Orlandine has worked as a carpenter for more than a year. He works every day from the early hours of the morning when he begins his work. He can work more than 10 hours, and does work on doors, windows, tables, chairs, and other things. He believes it is going well because he is very responsible and because he treats his clients well.

Orlandine is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to the help they have offered he will be able to purchase various tools such as a power saw, hand saws, hammers, nails, and sandpaper, among others. This way Orlandine will have his carpentry shop better equipped and he will be able to have all the necessary tools to carry out his work. Therefore, Orlandine hopes to continue working to be able to fulfill his dreams of making his small son a professional and of having his own house.
