A loan of $1,450 helped to build bathroom facilities for his home.

Catalino's story

Catalino is a 64 year old man who lives in Piura in the district of Jayanca with his wife and 2 children who he loves and who are his main reason for living. He is a friendly, hardworking, and enthusiastic person who, along with his wife, puts all his efforts into helping his family get ahead. Unfortunately, due to a lack of economic resources and because he had to work from a very young age, Catalino could not study for the agriculture degree that he wanted. In his free time he likes to spend some time reading and sometimes cooks fried fish to share with his family.
On his own initiative and with much effort and dedication, Catalino works selling agricultural produce that he grows on his small plot of land. He sells his produce to the merchants in the city. He works everyday from the early hours of the morning and works about 8 hours.
Catalino is very grateful to the Kiva lenders as, thanks to the help they offer, he will be able to build bathroom facilities for his home - currently the family does not have an adequate bathroom. In this way, Catalino and his family will have greater security and wellbeing. He will continue working and striving to achieve his great dream to increase his farm land.
