Ernesto Manuel
Ernesto is a young man of 29. He lives alongside his wife, who is a great support, and their two children who attend elementary school. Their home is located in the city of Imperial which is noted for its varied climate and its agriculture, especially its cotton and corn growing. Ernesto is a very hard-working man but some years ago there was an earthquake and he lost his home. In spite of this problem, however, he knew how to move forward. He gradually saved money and managed to buy two computers with which he started his small business offering Internet access, printing, typing and scanning services. He has been in this business for four years now and is able to cover his household expenses. Ernesto believes that his business is doing well because he is very responsible, hard-working and, above all, he serves his customers in a very friendly manner.

Ernesto is very grateful to Kiva lenders because, thanks to their help, he will be able to buy cable conduits, electricity cables, power outlets, units in which to install computers, etc. Ernesto will open another small Internet cafe. With this loan, he will be able to carry out suitable installation of his new premises, continue to grow his business and, above all, improve his income. In this way, he will be able to continue working hard to fulfill his biggest dream: to provide his children with a good education and, above all, to own a chain of Internet cafes.
