Percy's story

Percy, 38, lives in the city of Pucallpa with his wife and little five-year-old son who he loves and is his reason for living. He’s a very kind, hardworking, enthusiastic man who along with his wife focuses all his efforts into moving his family forward. Sadly, due to the lack of economic resources and the need to start working very young, Percy was unable to study auto mechanics. In his free time, he enjoys going on family outings along the warm, welcoming streets of his city.

On his own initiative and with munch effort and dedication, Percy works as a sales assistant for a commercial firm in his city and he also sells lumber. He works every day for about 10 hours daily and believes he does well because of the good way he does his work and the kind customer service he provides.

Percy is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support provided he will be able to build a small bathroom at home in order to have all the necessary hygienic services to provide better hygiene and well-being for his family. In this way, Percy will continue striving and working towards his great dream of having his own auto spare parts business.
