A loan of $1,100 helped to buy spare parts for electrical household appliances.


Lorenzo's story

Lorenzo is fifty-one years old, and lives together with his wife and their children in the house that they own. Lorenzo is an electronics technician. His father taught him this trade. Thanks to that, he began earning a living in an area where he was practically unknown. However, because of his kindness and honesty, he has won the affection and trust of the people. The eldest of his children is a great support. He learned this family trade from a very young age, and Lorenzo considers him to be his right-hand man.

From the beginning, he has always established his business in different areas. This has allowed him to make himself very loved and well-known among the inhabitants of the town. By saving his income, he was able to buy a set of stereo equipment that he rents out for social and sporting events. This generates great extra revenue. He feels very much at ease with his work. Thanks to his labor, he can economically maintain his family. He also has many long-term objectives, like opening an appliances store.

This is his second loan with Kiva, and he feels thankful for the financial support he has received in order to continue moving forward. On this occasion, he is asking for 3,000 soles. He will purchase spare parts for the types of electrical household appliances that he usually repairs. He hopes to always be at the service of his customers.
