Pedro's story

Pedro’s a 30-year-old, single man living in the city of Pisco. He’s a very kind, hardworking, enthusiastic person with a strong wish for self-improvement. Unfortunately, due to the lack of economic resources and because he needed to start working while still very young, Pedro was unable to study a technical career in heavy machinery operation. In his free time he enjoys watching soccer matches and sometimes cooks a delicious ‘Estofado de Pollo’ to share with his family.

On his own initiative and with much effort and dedication, Pedro works as a laborer for a municipal firm in his city and in addition sells clothes in the evenings in a small stand he has in a small market. Pedro works every day for about 12 hours and thinks he does well because of the good way he works and the kind treatment he provides his customers.

Pedro is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support provided he will be able to buy a larger amount and variety of clothe that will be very useful for him to stock his business thus attracting more customers. Pedro will thus be able to continue working and striving to reach his greatest dream: to own a small firm.
