In the warm city of Aguaytia lives Lister, a young man of 32 years who is the father of two wonderful children who are 2 years old and for whom he struggles every day in order to be able to get them ahead in life, since for Lister they are the greatest gift that God has given him. They are the motor and motive of his happiness and they are the strength to continue living and striving to improve every day. Lister, in his free time, enjoys playing sports, he especially likes to play soccer and also, on occasion, he loves to eat one of his favorite dishes which is the most delicious “Pollo a la Brasa” (a Peruvian roasted chicken dish).

With a lot of effort he managed to study auto mechanics and after much saving he managed to start his small auto repair business. He devotes around 9 hours a day to his business and can serve up to 5 clients daily. He believes that he is moving forward with his business because he is punctual and honest with his customers and because of this they always recommend him.

Lister is very grateful to the Kiva lenders since, thanks to the support that they are providing him, he will be able to purchase tools and spare parts for his business as well as an air compressor, which will allow him to be able to perform his work better and serve his clients in a better way since he will have the necessary implements.
