A loan of $600 helped to make improvements to his home.

Edwin Roberto's story

Edwin is 35 years old and lives in the city of Nazca with his two young children, whom he loves and who are his main reason for living. He is a very friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic person who dedicates all of his efforts to provide for his children.

Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources and the need to begin working, Edwin was not able to study a professional degree, but he would have very much liked to do so. He likes to listen to music in his free time, and occasionally he cooks a delicious Caparulcra con Sopa Seca (a Peruvian stew with pork and dehydrated potatoes) to share with his family.

By his own initiative and with plenty of effort and dedication, Edwin works as a taxi driver, offering transport services. He works for 12 hours every day, beginning in the early morning. He is happy with his work and he believes it is going well because he knows the areas where he can find a larger quantity of passengers.

Edwin is very grateful for the Kiva lenders because thanks to their help, he will be able to make improvements to his home. He would like to plaster and paint his home. He will continue working and striving to finish the construction of his home and to achieve his dream of giving the very best to his children.
