Vidal's story

Vida is a 55 year old man. He lives in the city of Chincha with his wife and children who he loves. They are his main reason for living. Vidal is a friendly, enthusiastic, and hardworking person. Together with his wife, they've dedicated all of their efforts to getting their family ahead. Unfortunately, due to the lack of economic resources and because Vidal has had to work since he was very young to help his parents, he could not finish primary school which has made it impossible for him to study a professional career.

Of his own initiative and with much effort and dedication, Vidal works in the field of construction as a foreman. He works every day for about 10 hours, and he believes it's going well because of the good finishes he puts in his work and because of the kind treatment he offers others. In his free time, Vidal likes to cook a delicious fried chicken to share with his family.

Vidal is very grateful to the Kiva lenders. Thanks to their help he will be able to purchase groceries and beverages which will help him start a small business selling staple products. In this way, Vidal hope to be able to have larger economic income so that he will be able to achieve his big dream of offering his family a better quality of life.
