A loan of $400 helped to improve his home.

Segundo Alfredo's story

Segundo is a single 20-year-old man. He lives in the city of Cañete, in the district of Imperial, with his parents and siblings. He is a very friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic person, who has a great desire for self-improvement. Segundo was unfortunately unable to do the heavy machinery maintenance and repair technical degree that he wanted to take, due to a lack of economic resources and the necessity that he begin working at a very young age.

In his spare time he likes to play soccer with his friends and sometimes cooks a delicious dish of "Arroz Chaufa" (Peruvian fried rice) to share with his family. At his own initiative, with a lot of hard work and dedication, Segundo works as a supervising field worker at an agricultural estate in his city. He works every day for about 10 hours and thinks that it is going well for him because of his good performance and the friendly way that he treats others.

Segundo is very appreciative of Kiva lenders, since thanks to their help he will be able to improve his home. The walls of his kitchen are damaged and need to be sealed and painted, and he needs to put in a floor. In this way, Segundo and his family will have better security and well-being. Segundo will continue to work and push himself to achieve his great dream of being able to study a professional degree.
