Julio Cesar's story

Julio, 21, is a young man living in the city of Pisco noted for its hot, welcoming climate. Many tourist sites are also here that receive visitors year-round. Julio lives with his wife who is his right hand and who provides him with all the encouragement and support needed to get ahead. In his free time, Julio enjoys playing soccer with his friends and neighbors but also loves to eat one of his favorite dishes, the delicious Duck with Rice.

Julio works very hard every day as an employee in a firm; he works about 9 hours daily and is able to cover household expenses this way. He’s very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the great help they’ve provided him, he’ll be able to buy building materials and supplies like cement and fine sand, among others, to do some home improvements, particularly repair the cracked walls. In this way, he’ll have a better living environment and will continue striving to reach his greatest dream: to own a house and have his own business.
