Pedro Vicente's story

Pedro is a 40-year old man who lives in the city of Cañete, in Mala's district, with his wife and their three children, whom he loves and are his priority in life. He's a nice, hard-working and enthusiastic man and, together with his wife, he makes every effort to support his family. Unfortunately, the lack of financial resources and the need to start working at an early age didn't allow him to finish his secondary studies or to go to college. He likes cooking Lomo Saltado in his free time to share with his family.

With a lot of determination and dedication, he took the initiative to start his own business selling food and slush. Additionally, he also offers bricklaying services. He works approximately 10 hours per day and believes things are going well thanks to his sense of responsibility and his kindness towards people.

Pedro feels very grateful to Kiva lenders. Thanks to their support, he will purchase construction materials, such as cement, sand, wood and others, that he'll use to make improvements to his store. He wants to have an appropriate and safe space for his clients, and to keep working hard towards his dream of seeing his children becoming good professionals.
