A loan of $475 helped to buy ingredients and supplies for his restaurant.

Wilfredo's story

Wilfredo, 24, is single and lives with his parents and siblings. He works hard every day to build a better future and reach his goals. Wilfredo sells traditional food and he rents a small establishment where he offers his customers a kind service, helped by his sister. He has had this business for three years, and he is doing well, fortunately, so he feels happy and has no worries. He hopes to have a larger and well-known restaurant in the future, where he can sell his food all day long.

Although he has gained some experience with this job, he feels that he still has more left to learn, and this is why he wants to get ahead, for his own and his family’s good. This is his third loan with Kiva and he appreciates the financial help he has received to reach his goals. With the requested amount, 1200 soles [PEN], he will buy ingredients and supplies like pasta, rice and chicken, and a couple of tables with their chairs to serve his customers.
