Victor Giovanni's story

Victor is 20 years old and lives in Chincha, a city known for its warm climate, the kindness of its inhabitants, and its beautiful beaches. Victor is a hard-working man with a humble spirit. He is the father of a small two-year-old boy whom he loves very much, and for whom he goes out every day to work with all his strength so that he can give him a better quality of life. Since his youth, Victor has made a great effort to get ahead in life because his parents had little financial resources and because of that he was only able to attend school until the fifth grade.

Every day Victor works as a laborer for a storage company. He spends about ten hours at work each day, and gets up very early so that he can begin work. He believes that his job is going well because he is very responsible with his work and because they trust him.

Victor is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to the support they have offered him he will be able to make improvements to his home, in particular by plastering the walls, and veneering and replacing the flooring. Thus, he will be able to improve his quality of life and continue working to make his greatest dream a reality: to finish building his house.
