Luis Enrique
Luis is 32 years old and lives with his wife and two children, who are fifteen and eight. Their home is located in the warm city of Pisco. Luis Enrique is a very hard worker, primarily because he must provide for his family, whom he loves very much. With honesty above all, he goes above and beyond to give them a decent life. Luis works as a tractor driver for around ten hours a day, but sometimes it can take longer because he is mostly hired to plow farm land. He thinks business is going well for him because he is responsible and kind to his customers.

Luis is very grateful to Kiva lenders because the help they provide will allow him to purchase materials like cement, sand, concrete, etc. in order to improve the walls of the home where he lives. This way he will be able to provide his family with a better quality of life and continue striving to make his greatest dream come true: to have a very large business and give his children a good education.

About Caja Rural Señor de Luren

Caja Rural Señor de Luren is a microfinance institution based in Ica in southern Peru that primarily promotes the development of the country’s agricultural sector through lending. Today, it also offers credit for consumers, microenterprises and housing improvements, and has expanded its financial services to promote micro-savings and provide micro-insurance. This institution has been instrumental in helping borrowers recover from the devastating earthquake in the Ica region in 2007, and works with Peru’s National Bank to reach some of the poorest and most remote microfinance clients in the country.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
