Gustavo Javier
Gustavo, 30, is single and his business is renting internet booths. This is a very popular service since not all of the people in Ica have access in their homes because they don't have enough money or for other reasons to install the service. This business reached its height around the year 2004 and allowed all those in the business to make a good income.

Gustavo studied Systems Engineering and thus he was one of the creators of this much solicited business. Now he is working about 5 hours every day since he has a young man who helps him daily. He tells us that he sees about 45 customers and that allows him to generate about 60 sols of earnings each day. He knows that this business is successful because it is the only one of its kind in his area.
His family was the one who pushed him to try this type of business and he became enthusiastic and started it.

He is a teacher in the university and this shows how he is interested in progressing and improving his standard of living. He will use the Kiva loans to perform some maintenance on the booths and this will improve the service to his frequent customers. The hard struggle and constant effort will permit him to fulfil his dream of having a communications business and his own home.
