A loan of $725 helped to make improvements to his home.


Edmundo's story

Edmund, who is 49, lives with his 2 children in the city of Ica, in Parcona district. He is a very hardworking and enthusiastic man who puts all his effort into supporting his family. Unfortunately, due financial hardship and the need to work, he was not able to study for a professional career. On his own initiative, Edmundo works as a bus driver, carrying workers to the different estates in his city. He works for about 10 hours a day and believes that he is successful because of his dedication and effort. Edmund is very grateful to Kiva lenders since, with the help they provide, he will improve his home by reinforcing the roof. He will, therefore, continue working and striving to achieve his great ambition: to continue working with a vehicle of his own.
