Gregorio's story

Gregorio is 41 years old and lives in the city of Pisco. He has a contagious charisma. From an early age he learned how to support himself with his own hard work, since his parents had few economic resources.

Each day Gregorio rises very early to go to work. He works as an agricultural worker for an agricultural holding in his city. With what he earns from his work, he is able to pay his household expenses. He believes that he is getting ahead because he is responsible, and above all, hardworking.

Gregorio is very grateful to Kiva lenders, because thanks to the support they give him, he will be able to buy construction materials such as sand, iron and bricks, among others. With these he will be able to finish the peripheral wall that surrounds his home, and therefore provide more security and a better quality of life to his family. This will also allow him to continue striving for his greatest dream, which is to finish the construction of his home.
