Bacilio's story

Bacilio is 29 years old and is a hardworking and responsible man. He lives in Tarapoto in his own house with his partner and 2 children. Since being a very young man Bacilio has worked because he has always been the family breadwinner. He learnt the trade of being a painter with his father and has been doing this for more than 10 years. This has made it possible for him to have stable work. During his many years' experience he has been able to have a stable business and now with the profits he makes from working as a painter he has been able to buy a mototaxi, with which he can earn an extra income. He is aiming to increase his income to improve his family's quality of life.

This is his first loan with Kiva and he is very grateful for the financial support he has received and promises to be punctual with his repayments. He will spend the 800 soles he has asked for to buy paint, paintbrushes, sandpaper and other items.
