Blidmer's story

Blidmer is 24 years old and a responsible man. He lives in the company of his parents and two siblings, whom he takes care of in their own house. As the oldest son, he works to help his parents and siblings, saying, "My parents are older and need my support." For this reason he has been working with the help of a partnership to rent rent a workshop for the creation of bricks. He makes 30 million bricks per month and sells them when he gets orders in advance. He now has repeat customers to whom he constantly offers good products.

Furthermore, thanks to his effort, he has two bulls whom he cares for with dedication on his land. He also grows alfalfa to feed them. In this way he handles his long days of plowing the land. Now he wants to begin caring for cows because there is a demand for fresh milk, so he will take the first step by purchasing a good quality cow. This is his firm loan with Kiva and he feels happy to have encountered the help which he greatly needed to take on his objectives. Blidmer will invest the 500 soles in the purchase of materials to make bricks like clay, glue, and more.
