Nicolas Tolentino
Nicolas lives in the city of Ica which is noted for its year-round, hot climate. The main business activity in this city is farming, especially grapes, asparagus, butter beans, etc. In his free time, Nicolas enjoys playing soccer with his neighbors and friends. He also loves our country's traditional food and his favorite dish is 'arroz con pollo' (rice with chicken). Nicolas only studied up to the fifth year of his secondary education but he would have liked to have gone on to study mechanics.

Nicolas is committed to his job as a taxi driver. He currently drives a vehicle which he hires. He works around 10 hours a day and is able to serve up to 40 customers. He believes that his business is doing well because he is very responsible. He says that, when he drives, his customers arrive safely at their destination.

Nicolas is very grateful to Kiva lenders because, thanks to their support, he will be able to renew his driver's license at the same category. This will allow him to work without problems and he will not incur any traffic offenses. In this way, he will be able to continue working hard every day to achieve his biggest dream: to own a car and his own home.
