Pedro Antonio's story

Pedro is 63 years old. He lives in Pisco, a city characterized by a warm climate and beautiful beaches. From a very young age, Pedro needed to work to support his parents. For this reason, he only completed up to the fifth grade of secondary school. However, he would have liked to study for a degree in agricultural engineering. Day by day, Pedro works in his small business selling groceries, a business that enables him to earn income and get his family ahead, especially his little four year old son. He loves his son very much and makes sacrifices to provide him with better opportunities than he had.

Pedro is very grateful for the Kiva loans thanks to the great support they have provided, he will be able to buy iron, sand, and other materials to make home improvements, which will improve his family’s quality of life. He will also continue striving to be able to make his greatest dream a reality: “To finish building his home and be able to provide his son with a good education”.
