Gunter's story

Gunter is a 21 year old youth who lives in the city of Pisco with his wife with whom he has a 2 year old child. Gunter is a youth who is very inclined to get ahead above all because he wants his family to have a better quality of life. Day to day he works as a security guard for the municipality of his city. He works around 10 hours per day and with the fruits of his labor is able to settle the expenses of his home with much effort. He believes that he is doing well in his job because he is responsible and honest.

Gunter is very grateful for the Kiva loans because thanks to the help that they offered him he will be able to buy construction materials like cement and sand, among other items, in order to be able to make improvements in his housing such as repairing the walls and laying the flooring, among other improvements. In this manner he will be able to offer a better quality of life to his family and will be able to strive to realize his greatest dream: "To have his own home and to have his own business."
