A loan of $1,100 helped to buy construction materials.


Jimmy Pool's story

Jimmy is 34 years old. He lives in the city of Pisco, a city located on the Peruvian coast. It is known for its varied cuisine, its beautiful beaches, and above all its tourist attractions. Jimmy is a very hardworking man who above all really wants to get ahead. That is why he works every day as a gardener, and with the income from his job he is able, with much effort, to pay for his household expenses. Jimmy believes that he is getting ahead because he is very responsible and he is always reliable with the customers.

Jimmy is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to the help they have given he will be able to buy construction materials such as bricks, sand, concrete, and more. This way, he will be able to improve his parents' house, since the walls are cracked. This will improve his quality of life, and he will keep fighting to be able to make his biggest dream come true: own his own home and keep helping his family.
