Armando's house and business are found in this hot and dry climate. In his free time, he likes to listen to music. In addition, since Peru is known for having some of the most delicious food in the world, one of Armando's favourite dishes is "lomo saltado" (a kind of stir-fried beef). Armando studied until the fifth year of secondary school but he would have liked to have studied law. He is a single father and has 2 children in primary school whom he loves very much.
Armando works as a taxi driver and spends about 15 hours a day working. In a day, Armando can serve up to 60 customers. He thinks that his business is going very well because he treats his customers kindly, and because he is responsible and honest.
He is very thankful to Kiva lenders since this is the second time now that they have offered their wonderful support. With their continued help he will buy construction materials like roofing sheets and lumber, among other things. This will allow him to fix the roof of his house and prevent flooding from rain. This will help him to improve his quality of life and continue to fight to achieve his great dream: "To give his children a profession and to have a new car."
