Raymundo's story

Raymundo lives with his wife and his two children, whom he loves very much, in the city of Camana. This city is known for its beautiful beaches and its warm and inviting climate. It is also known for its delicious shrimp and for its agriculture, especially the cultivation of rice, which is considered among the best in the world. As a good Peruvian, he loves food, and one of his favorite dishes is the delicious “Tallarín Verde” [noodles with pesto]. In his free time, he likes to play soccer with his friends.

With great effort and dedication, he works as a moto-taxi driver. He works about 12 hours each day, and he can serve up to 70 customers in a day. He believes that his business is going well for him because he serves his customers in a friendly manner, and above all because he is very honest.

Raymundo is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since this is the second time they are providing this valuable help to him. Thanks to this, he will be able to continue improving his home. On this opportunity, he will be able to install a cement floor and carry out the installation of wiring for electricity. This will permit him to provide a better quality of life for his family, and he will continue working so that he can achieve his greatest dream: "to give his children a good education."
