Mario Alberto's story

Mario is 38 years old. He lives in the city of Ica with his partner and their young son, 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 support his family, along with his partner.

Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources and the need to begin working, Mario was not able to study a professional degree in agriculture, but he would have very much liked to do so. In his free time, he likes to watch television. Occasionally he cooks a delicious Carapulcra (a Peruvian stew made with meat and potatoes) to share with his family.

By his own initiative and with plenty of effort and dedication, Mario works as a master constructor. He works for eight hours per day, beginning in the early morning. He is happy with his work and he believes it is going well because of his good finishing touches and the friendly manner in which he treats his clients.

Mario is very grateful for the Kiva lenders because thanks to their help, he will be able to buy construction materials such as sand, cement, and bricks, among others. This will be very helpful for him as he completes the construction of his home. He will continue working and putting in effort to achieve his dream of having his own company and providing the best quality of life for his family.
