Hilario's story

Hilario is a very hard-working and enthusiastic man. He lives in the city of Camana, which is known for having beautiful beaches. The city is also known for agricultural development, particularly the cultivation of rice. People also raise fish and above all in the city one can find various typical dishes like the delicious Chupe de Camarones (Lip Smacking Shrimp).

Day to day Hilario works in his business as a farmer. Currently he grows mostly rice, and he works around 8 hours each day. With the fruit of his labor he can pay for family expenses, since he is the father of three children. He believes that things are going well for his business because he is very responsible and above all he always has God on his side.

Hilario is very thankful to the Kiva lenders since due to their support he will be able to purchase fertilizers and other items. This will help him maintain his fields in good order and in this way he can keep working each day to make his great dream a reality: "To be a great micro-entrepreneur."
