A loan of $800 helped to buy a laptop for his daughters to use in their school work.


Mario Heber's story

Mario is 44 years old. He lives in the city of Ica with his wife and daughters, whom he loves and they are the main reason for living. He is a very friendly person, hardworking and enthusiastic, and he devotes all his efforts towards providing for his family. In his free time he likes to share pleasant times with his family and sometimes he cooks the delicious Arroz Chaufa (fried rice with chicken) to spoil them.

On his own initiative, through much effort and dedication, Mario works as a master builder. He works every day from early morning hours for approximately 10 hours, being happy in his work and he believes that it is going well because of his finished product and the friendly treatment he gives his customers.

Mario is grateful to Kiva lenders, and thanks to their assistance he will be able to buy a laptop, for his daughters to use, who are students. He wants to help them with this tool so they can do their work and have better methods to study. He continues working and putting his efforts towards finishing the construction of his home and towards achieving his big dream of seeing his daughters become good professionals.
