Giancarlo's story

Giancarlos lives in the city of Chincha with his wife and one-year-old son, whom he loves very much and for whom he strives every day at his job as a production line operator for a small business in the city. Giancarlos thanks the Kiva lenders, whose funding will allow him to buy building materials to make improvements to his house and raise his family's standard of living.
