Abilio Alberto's story

Abilio, 37, lives in the city of Ica in the Santiago district with his beloved five children, who are his reason for living. Sadly, Abilio's wife died recently, and since then he has dedicated himself to providing for his family. Abilio started working at an early age so that he could help his parents, as he has many siblings; therefore, he couldn't finish high school or study a profession, though he would have liked to have done so.

On his own initiative and with dedication, Abilio works in the fields for a city agriculture fund. He works every day from early morning for as many as 10 hours. He likes his job, which he feels is going well because he works hard and treats others kindly.

Abilio thanks the Kiva lenders, as their support will allow him to buy a small piece of land on which he will soon start building his own house. He now lives in a small rented house that isn't very safe. Abilio will keep working hard to achieve his great dream to give his children a good education and a decent standard of living.
