Pompeo's story

Pompeo is a 37 years old friendly and good man. He is separated and he is the father of three children with whom he lives in his own home. Pompeo works selling groceries like rice, flour and eggs, among others. Each morning he gets up very early to attend to his clients in a very friendly manner. He has been running this business for more than 4 years and it has allowed him to earn additional wages because he also works as an administrative professional in the municipal government of the city. His business is going well, as is his job, now that he earns two wages. This allows him to have a few comforts in his home and at the same time to support his children who are in school and need significant materials to be able to complete their studies in an adequate way. This is his first loan with Kiva and he feels grateful for the financial support that he is receiving to get ahead. In addition, he promises to make his payments on time. With the amount of $375 that he is seeking he will buy general groceries like rice, flour and eggs, among others.
