Walter Flavio's story

Walter is a 45 year old man. He lives in the city of Pisco with his wife and two young children, whom he loves and who are his main reason for living. He is a kind, hard working and enthusiastic person who with his wife puts all of his effort into getting his family ahead. Unfortunately, sue to a lack of resources and out a need to work from when he was very young, Walter was unable to study agriculture as he would have liked to do. In his free time, he likes to go out with his family through the pleasant streets of his city.

With much hard work and dedication and thanks to what his parents taught him, Walter works in agriculture. He has a small land parcel where he plants corn. Walter works every day doing farm work, and he can work for about 10 hours a day. He is content doing his labor and thinks it is going well for him because of his experience and the kind way he treats others.

Walter is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to the help they have given he will be able to cover the costs of fertilizer, irrigation and harvesting of his crop. In this way, Walter will ensure the good development of his corn crop. He will keep working and striving to achieve his big dream of building his house.
