A loan of $600 helped to make improvements to his house.

Pedro Antony's story

Pedro is a 20 year old man. He is single and lives in the city of Chincha with his parents and siblings. He is a very friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic person who is eager to succeed. Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources and because he had to work to help his parents, Pedro was unable to pursue a career in industrial engineering.

In his spare time he enjoys watching movies and occasionally cooks a delicious Frejoles con Seco to share with his family. On his own initiative and with great effort and dedication, Pedro works as a laborer on a poultry farm in the city. He works about 10 hours every day and feels that things are going well because he does a good job and he treats others kindly.

Pedro is very grateful to Kiva lenders since, due to their help, he will be able to make improvement to his house. He needs to repair the roof and install flooring and provide greater security and comfort for his family. To that end, he will continue to work and try to realize his dreams of becoming a professional someday.
