Florentino Alberto's story

Florentino is a 57 year old man who lives in the city of Chincha with his wife and small son. He loves them and they are his main purpose in life. He is a very friendly, hard working and enthusiastic person who dedicates all of his strength to moving his family forward. Unfortunately because of a lack of economic resources and because of the need to work to cover expenses, Florentino could not study for a professional career but he would have liked to do so. In his free time he likes to spend a little time reading and sometimes cooks a delicious "carapulcra" to share with his family.

By his own initiative and his much perseverance and dedication, Florentino works as a day laborer in a nursery in his city. He works every day from early in the morning and does so for about eight hours. He feels pleased to do his work and believes that it is going well for him because of his perseverance and the friendly manner that he brings to others.

Florentino is very thankful for the Kiva lenders because thanks to the help provided he will be able to cover the costs of repairing and installing electricity in his home. In this way he will be able to bring greater security and well-being to his family. He will continue working and putting in the effort to achieve his dream of having his own home.
