A loan of $1,100 helped to make improvements to his home.


Eloy Richard's story

Eloy is 28 years old and lives with his wife in the city of Ica, district of Parcona. He is a friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic person who dedicates all of his efforts into making headway for his family. Sadly as a result of a lack of resources and the necessity to work from a very young age, Eloy was not able to pursue a civil engineering degree as he hoped. In his free time he enjoys playing soccer with his friend and on occasion cooking a rich Carapulca con Sopa Seca (a traditional dish) to share with his family. On his own initiative and with a lot of hard work and dedication, Eloy works as a security guard for a construction materials company in his city. He works every day for approximately 12 hours, and believes it is going well thanks to his good performance and the friendly way he treats others. Eloy is very grateful for Kiva lenders, because thanks to your support he will be able to make improvements to his home, since the winter rainy season is approaching and he wants to repair his roof. In this way, Eloy and his family will have more safety and comfort, so he will continue working hard with the support of his wife to achieve his biggest dream of having a good restaurant.
