Milciades's story

Miliciades is 38 years old and lives in the city of Pisco with his wife and two young children, whom he loves. They are the main reason of his life. He is a very kind person, hard-working and enthusiastic. With his wife, they devote all their efforts to get their family ahead. Unfortunately, due to the lack of financial resources and the need to work since very young, Miliciades couldn't study the career of Administration. In his spare time, he likes to watch soccer games and sometimes he cooks delicious "Seco a la Norteña" to share with his family.

On his own initiative, with much effort and dedication, Miliciades works in his small business selling peeled potatoes, which he sells to a variety of chicken restaurants in his city. Miliciades works every day for about eight hours. He believes he is doing well because of the good prices and the kind treatment he gives to his customers.

Miliciades is very grateful to Kiva lenders, because thanks to the help provided he will be able to buy a small food stall in the central market of his city. This way, Miliciades will have a fixed location where he can keep selling potatoes and his customers can locate him. He will keep working and striving to achieve his dream of having his own home.
