On his own initiative, and with much hard work and dedication, for the past year Carlos has worked as a field hand in an agricultural cooperative in his town. He works every day for approximately 10 hours and he believes that things are going well because he is responsible and he treats others well. Carlos is very thankful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to their help he will be able to build the back section of his house. Currently it is made with wood and cane, which does not offer much security. Carlos will continue working and pushing himself in order to achieve his dream of having his own pastry business and thus to be able to get ahead.
Por iniciativa propia, con mucho empeño y dedicación, desde hace un año Carlos trabaja como obrero de campo en un fundo agrícola de su ciudad, él trabaja todos los días por un aproximado de 10 horas y cree que le va bien por su responsabilidad y por el trato amable que brinda a los demás.
Carlos se encuentra muy agradecido con los prestamistas Kiva, ya que gracias a la ayuda brindada podrán realizar la construcción de la parte trasera de su vivienda, ya que actualmente está cercado de madera y cañas, las cuales no brindan seguridad, así pues Carlos seguirá trabajando y esforzándose para lograr su gran sueño de tener su propio negocio de pastelería y así poco a poco desea salir adelante.
