A loan of $800 helped improve his home.


Concepcion Raul's story

Concepción is 36 years old and lives in the city of Ica. He has three children, who he loves and are his reason for living. He is a very friendly, hard working and enthusiastic person who dedicates all his energy to getting his family ahead. Unfortunately, due to a lack of resources, and because he needs to work, Concepción could not study for a professional career, but he would have liked to have done so. In his free time he likes to continue working and on occasion he makes a delicious dish of Chicharrones (a dish made from pork) to share with his family. On his own initiative and with a lot of tenacity and dedication, Concepción works as a field hand on an agricultural farm close to his city. He works every day from the early morning hours and continues to work for around 8 hours. He is glad to do his work and believes that everything is going well because of his performance and responsibility. Concepción is very appreciative of the loaners on Kiva because it is thanks to their help that he will be able to improve his home. He wants to be able to put a roof on the back part of the building because the rainy season is approaching and he wants to protect his family. To do this, he will continue working and striving to achieve his dream to finish the construction on his house.
