A loan of $375 helped to build his house's foundation.


Americo's story

Americo is a hard-working man. He is 31-years old and lives in San Juan de Lurigancho with his parents.
For more than three years, he has had a stall outside the market, where he sales high-quality and affordable kebabs, "rachi" (a local dish made from cows' belly), and tripe. Americo is a very responsible person who, with a lot of hard work and dedication, has been able to get his four children ahead.
Americo is grateful for the Kiva lenders because, with their help, he will be able to build his house's foundation so that later on, he can start to build the house. He will then have a better place to live and improve his family's quality of life.
