Carlos Alberto's story

Carlos is 37 years old, he lives in the city of Nazca with his wife and two young daughters, whom he loves and are his main reason for living. He is a very kind, hardworking and enthusiastic person who devotes all his efforts to raise his family. Unfortunately, Carlos had to start working at an early age to help his parents, and was unable to pursue a career, but he would have liked very much to do so. In his spare time, he likes to listen to music and sometimes his wife cooks a delicious arroz con pollo to pamper him, as this is his favorite food.

Of his own initiative, with a lot of effort and dedication, Carlos works every day as a driver for a hardware store in their city. He transports building materials on a truck to different areas. Carlos can work for about 12 hours; he feels comfortable doing the work and believes that he does well because of his responsibility and good performance.

Carlos is very grateful to Kiva lenders, and thanks to their assistance, may cover medical expenses, transportation and hospitalization of his mother, as she is in very delicate health and needs to be taken to a medical center in the capital to treat her painful illness. Carlos will continue to work and strive to achieve his dream of completing the construction of their home, in order to provide greater security and wellness for himself and his family.
