Simeon Nestor's story

Simeon is a very hard-working man. At his 63 years of age he keeps the vitality and joy of a 20 year old young man. Simeon lives in the city of Nazca, a warm city with marvelous tourist attractions. Its people are happy and charismatic. Simeon shares his life together with his wife, who supports him in everything that he does. Above all, she is his friend and his best companion. Each day Simeon works as a farmer. He devotes around eight hours a day to his work. He does this because it pays the household expenses. Simeon believes that he is getting ahead because he is responsible, and above all, he likes what he does. Simeon is grateful to the Kiva lenders. Thanks to the support they are giving him he will be able to improve the walls of his house. They are currently cracked, and this way he will be able to have a better quality of life for his family. This way he will be able to continue struggling in order to be able to make his biggest dream come true: “To reunite his children who are far away from the city”.
