Wilmer is 19 years old. He lives with his girlfriend, with whom he has a 2-year-old son. He loves his son very much and wants to fight every day to offer him a better quality of life, especially because he wants to give him what he never had himself. Due to his limited resources, he could only study up to the fifth grade of secondary school, but he would have liked to study auto mechanics.

Every day, Wilmer works as a soft drinks deliveryman. He works about 8 hours per day, and with the fruits of his labor he covers his home expenses. He believes that his job is going well because he is very responsible, and especially because he has the desire to succeed.

Wilmer is very grateful for the Kiva lenders. Thanks to their help, he will be able to make improvements to his home and refurbish the ceiling, because the rainy season is coming and he will then be able to avoid floods in his house. In this way, he will be able to offer a better quality of life to his family and continue working to make his greatest dream come true: "to have a career and to be able to give his son 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.
