Italo Pedro's story

Italo is a 57-year old man. He lives in the city of Camaná with his wife and their children. He loves his family, and they give meaning to his life. Italo is a friendly, hard-working and enthusiastic person who dedicates all his hard work toward getting his family ahead. Unfortunately, due to his financial situation and his need to work, Italo wasn't able to study a profession. But he would have liked very much to do so. In his free time, Italo likes to walk with his wife on a beach near their home. And sometimes he makes a delicious Arroz Chaufa (fried rice) to share with his family.
Italo started farming on his own initiative. He works with a lot of hard work and dedication. He has a small plot of land on which he grows beans. He works everyday for about ten hours, starting very early in the morning. Italo feels happy doing his work and he believes that it is going well for him because of his experience and the care he gives to his crops.
Italo is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to the help they have offered, he will be able to purchase compost and fertilizer for his crops. In this way, Italo hopes to get a better harvest. He will continue working and putting forth the effort to make his greatest dream come true- to improve the condition of his house, which will offer his family improved security and well-being.
