A loan of $275 helped to purchase tools.


Luis Rufino's story

Luis is a 39 year old man, he is single, and he lives in the city of Ica. He is a very kind, hard-working and enthusastic person who has a great desire to get ahead. Sadly due to a lack of money and because he has had to work from the time he was very young, Luis was not able to pursue a professional career in Civil Engineering, but he very much would have liked to do that. In his free time he likes to dance and at times he eats a delicious roasted chicken, which is his favorite meal.

Because of his own initiative, and much hard work and dedication, Luis works as a Construction Operator. He works very day from very early in the morning and usually for around 8 hours. He is very happy doing his work and believes that things are going well because of his dedication and the kind treatment he offers to others.

Luis is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to their help he will be able to purchase diverse tools for construction, like buckets, pickaxes, hammers and other items. In this way Luis will have his own tools in order to complete construction projects in an independent manner. In this way he will continue working and struggling to get ahead and achieve his great dream of having his own house.
