A loan of $625 helped to build a room.


Rodrigo's story

Rodrigo, 20, lives in the city of Ica, which has a warm climate and is characterized by its agriculture, especially grapes, asparagus, cotton, and other crops.

Rodrigo works around nine hours every day as an employee in a clothing store in his city. He can serve up to 15 customers a day. With the fruit of his labor he can help his parents with some of the household expenses. Rodrigo thinks it's going well for him in his job because he's very cooperative and he gives his customers good service.

Rodrigo's very grateful to the Kiva lenders. Thanks to their help he'll be able to build a small room, because part of his home is adobe. This way he'll be able to improve his quality of life and continue making the effort and striving to make his biggest dream come true: "To have his own business."
