A loan of $1,450 helped to buy building materials.


Ronald Augusto's story

Simón is a young worker, who lives in the city of Nazca. He works as a janitor for a small business in the city, and he supports himself and helps his mother with his earnings.

Thanks to Kiva lenders, Simón will be able to buy building materials to lay a cement floor in his house, which is made of adobe, and buy new doors and windows to replace the ones made of reed. He will be able to make his mother safer and be able to keep striving to achieve his dreams of going to college and having a higher standard of living.
