A loan of $275 helped to do some home improvements.


Boris Cristian's story

Boris, 19, lives in the city of Nazca with his parents and siblings. He’s a very kind, hardworking and enthusiastic person who very much wants to improve. Sadly, Boris has been unable to study business administration because he had to go to work to help out his parents who are very humble. He enjoys listening to music in his free time and sometimes cooks a delicious “Chicharrones de Pollo” [deep-fried chicken] to share with his family. On his own initiative and with much effort and dedication, Boris works as a driver for a delivery service firm in his city. He works starting very early in the morning and works approximately 12 hours. Boris feels good doing his work and believes he does well because of the good way he does his work and the kind way he treats others. Boris is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support provided he will be able to do some home improvements. He wants to plaster the walls and install a concrete floor in one of the bedrooms at home. With this, he’ll have a bedroom in better condition that will provide increased safety and wellbeing for him and his family and Boris will continue working and striving to reach his great dream of being able to study a professional career and become a good professional.
