A loan of $375 helped to buy wood and boards.


Pedro Carlos's story

Pedro, 61, is single and lives in the city of Ica, in the district of Parcona. He is very hardworking and enthusiastic, and he puts all his efforts into moving forward. Unfortunately, due to a lack of resources and because he had to work, Pedro was not able to study a professional degree. On his own initiative, Pedro works as a construction worker on various projects in his city. He works every day for about 10 hours and he thinks it is going well because of his dedication and effort. Pedro is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to the help they have provided, he will buy wood and planks. These will really help him to do his work. He will keep working and making an effort to achieve his great dream of being the best construction worker in his city.
