Oscar's story

Oscar is 34 years old and married to Yudy, who has a job and is mother to their only son, who is three years old. This family lives together in their own privately owned house. Oscar makes a living building homes in the local area. However, because he is very well-known, sometimes people ask him to work in neighbouring cities. Oscar started this business with his own initiative over ten years ago, as he already had the necessary knowledge to do it. He needed also to be able to have his own income so that he did not have to rely solely on another business. So, seeing his good results, Oscar is saving his profits as, in the future, he would like to open a grocery store so as to provide his children with a better quality of living. This will be Oscar's first loan with Kiva and he is very grateful for the financial support that he is receiving in order to get ahead. Oscar will buy building tools such as hammers, measuring tapes, sledgehammers and more with this loan of 4000 Nuevo Soles.
