A loan of $575 helped to buy land.

Serapio's story

Serapio lives in the Rupa Rupa district, which is located in the Peruvian jungle. He is 63 years old, but he has the joy and charisma of a 20 year old. He puts forth great effort day to day in his job as a workman with an institution in his city. It is his only source of income in order to be able to get ahead and to pay for the household expenses. He believes that it is going well for him because he is very responsible and very dedicated.

Serapio is grateful to the Kiva lenders. Thanks to the help they have provided him with, he will be able to buy a piece of land where he will be able to build his house. This way he will continue struggling in order to make his big dream a reality. His dream is to have his own house.
