A loan of $275 helped to buy roofing materials.


Kevin Gabriel's story

Kevin, 19, lives in the happy and warm city of Chincha, known for its varied gastronomy, beautiful beaches and happiness of its people. He is able to get ahead with much effort as his family is humble with scarce economic resources. Despite the obstacles he is up against, he is a student of veterinary medicine and love animals. To cover his education expenses he works at a parish in the city about five hours a day. He believes he is doing well because he is responsible and wants his family to be proud of him.

Kevin is very grateful to Kiva lenders because, thanks to their support, he is able to buy construction materials such as matting, wood and cane so he can put the roof on a small room where he plans to live. The one he is in now is not in very good condition. This will give him a better quality of life so he can continue toward his goal: "To build a home out of stone for his parents and become a good professional".
