A loan of $375 helped to buy building supplies to finish the bathrooms at home.


Honorio's story

Honorio, 38, is a serious man. He lives with his wife, Norma, and their two children who he cares for in the house he bought seven years ago. Honorio works building houses; he’s a very well-known construction worker now. “My work helped me support my family and to build my own house,” he affirms.

He works with the help of persons he hires according to each contract and each construction plan. He considers his work to be very profitable in that he’s paid very well at each construction project for his services. In addition, he has many contracts. “I have no shortage of work; when I finish one job, another one starts up,” he comments happily. Now, he’d like to have all the machinery to earn higher profits and win more contracts.

For now, he concentrates on completely finishing his house. This is his second Kiva loan and he’s grateful for the financial support he gets because he’ll be able to reach his goals. In addition, he commits to be punctual with his payments. Honorio will use the 1,000 soles to buy such materials as cement, bricks and sand to finish his bathroom at home.
