Medardo Elias's story

Medardo is a young entrepreneur. He is 33 years old and lives with his family in Lima. He has been working as a mason for several years and does remodeling, finishing and other things in homes and businesses. Things are going well for him because he is a very responsible and hardworking person and above all because he does excellent work. Medardo is very grateful of the Kiva lenders because their help has allowed him to remodel his home by refinishing and painting the walls and repairing the floor. In this way his family can feel safer, more comfortable, and be able to live better.
