A loan of $575 helped to buy wood boards.


Eddy Ricardo's story

Eddy is a 23-year-old young man who lives in the city of Ica, in the district of Parcona. Eddy is separated from his partner, with whom he has two small children he loves even though he is not close to them. Eddy is a very kind, hardworking, and enthusiastic person who devotes himself completely to helping his children get ahead. Unfortunately, due to financial hardship, Eddy had to begin working at an early age and was not able to study Civil Engineering like he had hoped to.

In his free time, Eddy likes to play soccer with his friends and, on special occasions, he cooks the delicious Arroz con Pollo (a chicken and rice dish) to share with his family.

By his own initiative and with much dedication and determination, Eddy works as a master builder on a variety of jobs, improving houses, businesses and other buildings. He works about 10 hours a day and believes that he has been successful thus far due to his work ethic and the kind way he treats others.

Eddy is very grateful to Kiva lenders for the support of this loan offered to him to buy wood, which he needs for his work. Eddy will continue working hard toward his dream of becoming the owner of a successful business.
