A loan of $375 helped to buy merchandise.


Jose Hermogenes's story

Jose, 68, lives in the city of Huaraz in the district of Carhuaz with his wife. He has two children and is a kind, hard-working person who does all he can to provide for his family. Unfortunately, due to a lack of economic resources and the need to work, Jose was unable to get professional training.

On his own initiative, Jose has a small business selling hats. He works about ten hours a day and believes things are going well for him because of his dedication and low prices.

Jose is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to their support he will be able to buy more volume and a wider variety of merchandise. This will allow him to continue working and striving to reach his goal in life which is to lead a tranquil, peaceful existence.
