Richard Alberto's story

Richard is a 26 year old man. He is single and lives in the city of Nazca. He is a very friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic person. He is very ambitious. Unfortunately, however, due to a lack of economic resources, and as he had to work from a very young age, Richard was not able to pursue professional studies in Civil Engineering.

In his free time he likes to listen to music and sometimes he cooks a delicious “Lomo Saltado”, a meat stir-fry, to share with his family.

On his own initiative, and with a lot of determination and dedication, Richard works in the construction sector. He works as a master builder. He works every day for approximately 10 hours. He enjoys his work and thinks that it is going well for him as the finish he puts on his jobs is always very good.

Richard is very grateful to the Kiva lenders as thanks to their help he will be able to buy work tools and equipment, such as beams, buckets, etc. In this way, he can carry out his work well. This will enable him to continue working and persevering to achieve his dream, which his to have his own home and gradually get ahead in life.
