A loan of $400 helped to buy school supplies for his children.


Luis Alberto's story

Luis is a 48 year old man. He lives in the city of Chincha with his wife and three children, whom he lives and who are his main reason for living. He is a friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic person. With his wife he puts all of his effort into getting his family ahead. In his free time, he likes to play soccer with his friends and at times cook a delicious carapulcra with sopa seca to share with his family.

On his own initiative and with much hard work and dedication, Luis works offering cleaning services in the logistics department of a business in his city. He works every day for approximately 10 hours a day and he thinks it is going well for him because of the friendly way he treats others.

Luis is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to their help he will be able to buy school supplies for his children, since they are school aged and the need materials for their studies. He will continue to work and strive to achieve his biggest dream, which is seeing his children have good careers.
