Edelmiro Manuel's story

Edelmiro is a 32 year old man who lives in the city of Camaná. He is very friendly, hardworking, enthusiastic person with a strong desire to succeed. Regrettably, due to a lack of financial resources, he had to begin working when he was very young and Edelmiro was unable to study for a professional career although he would have liked to do so very much. In his free time, he enjoys playing soccer with his friends.

By his own initiative and with much determination and dedication, Edelmiro works as a laborer on an estate farm in his city. He works every day for about ten hours and feels that it is going well because of his good performance and the kind treatment he provides to others.

Edlemiro is very grateful for the Kiva loans because thanks to the support provided, he will be able to improve his home. He wishes to purchase building materials for cementing and installing concrete floors in his home. In this way, he will continue working and striving to achieve his great dream of being able to get ahead in life.
