A loan of $400 helped to improve a bedroom.


Toribio Dario's story

Toribio, 37, lives in the city of Ica, in the district of Santiago with his wife and his two children who he loves and are his driving force in life. Toribio is a very friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic person who, with the support of his wife, put all of their efforts into getting their family ahead in life. Unfortunately due to a lack of financial resources, and because of the need to work to cover spending, Toribio was unable to finish secondary school, but very much would have likely to have studied a degree in Agronomy. In his free time, he likes watching television and sometimes prepares a delicious dish of Caldo de Gallina to share with his family.

Upon his own initiative and with a lot of hard work and dedication, Toribio works as a laborer in a farm in his city. He works every day from the early hours of the morning and can work for approximately 8 hours. He feels content performing this work and believes that it is going well thanks to his hard work and the friendly way he treats others.

Toribio is extremely grateful to the Kiva loan lenders, as it is thanks to the help given that he will be able to improve the bedroom of one of his children given that he is suffering from a terrible illness and needs greater safety and well-being in the environment in which he lives. Therefore, Toribio will continue working and making every effort to achieve his greatest dream of having his own home and giving his family a better quality of life.
