A loan of $550 helped to buy livestock.


Lionel's story

Lionel, 26, lives in his aunt’s and uncle’s house. He works buying and selling livestock. His friend taught him this activity but when he got experience he started his own business. He was able to buy a vehicle with his savings and thus improve his business. Thanks to his effort and dedication he was able to get ahead and now has a stable business that helps him improve his quality of life and help his parents economically.

Like all enterprising men he hopes to continue growing and moving his activity forward increasing productivity and improving his work. This is his first Kiva loan and he’s grateful for the economic support received; he promises to be punctual with his payments. Lionel will use the requested 1,500 soles to buy livestock and he will increase his sales.
