A loan of $525 helped to buy construction materials to fix his walls.


Abelardo Paul's story

Abelardo is 31 years old and lives in the city of Chincha. He works as quality inspector for an institution. With this job, he makes enough to bring food to the table. He has a nine-year-old son that goes to school.

Abelardo appreciates the help that Kiva lenders have given him, since he will now be able to buy construction materials to make some home improvements. In particular, he wants to fix the walls, since they have cracks due to the frequent earthquakes hitting the region. This way, he will be able to improve his family’s quality of life and make his biggest dream come true: to have a house of his own.
