A loan of $400 helped to buy an oven.


Cesar Eduardo's story

Cesar is 25 years old. He is single, and lives in the town of Ica, in the district of Parcona, with his parents and siblings. He is a very nice, hard-working, and enthusiastic person, who always wants to do his best. Unfortunately, due to his economic situation and the need to start working at a very young age to help his parents, Cesar was unable to study business administration, which is what he would have liked to do. In his spare time, he likes to watch movies, and sometimes cooks a delicious chicken-and-rice dish called 'arroz con pollo', which he shares with his family. On his own initiative, sparing no efforts, and with admirable dedication, Cesar works as a labourer on a farm belonging to an agricultural union in his town. He works every day for about ten hours and attributes his success to his efforts and his amiability towards other people. Cesar is very grateful to Kiva lenders, since, thanks to their help, he will be able to buy an oven to replace the kerosene-powered stove he is currently using, which is flawed and hazardous. Thus, Cesar and his family will be able to cook in a more safe and secure manner. He wants to keep working towards his great dream of learning a profession and improving both his lot in life and his family's fortunes.
