Crecencio's story

In the warm city of Pucallpa, where one can find beautiful tourist attractions such as Huacachina Lake, lives Creciendo, who is 58 years old. He is a very hardworking man who loves his family very much. His wife and three children are the greatest gift God could have given him.

Creciendo learned to work when he was very young, because his parents had limited resources and he needed to support them. Therefore, he could only study until the fifth grade of secondary school, but he would have liked to study Civil Engineering.

Day to day, Creciendo works in his small business selling snacks, soda and beer. He works for about ten hours and serves up to 25 clients per day. He believes that he is successful because he has a variety of products and because he serves his clients in a friendly manner.

Creciendo is very grateful for the Kiva lenders because thanks to their help, he will be able to buy merchandise for his business, such as wholesale soda and beer. He will then have a greater variety of products and he will be able to improve his earnings. In this way, he will continue fighting to make his dream a reality: to finish building his home with quality materials.
