Carlos Mario
Carlos, 41, lives in the city of Camaná which is noted for its hot, welcoming climate. Agriculture is also common here, especially rice and broad beans, among others. Carlos is a very hardworking, enthusiastic man. Since he was very young he had to help out his parents because of their limited economic resources and because of that he was only able to attend fifth grade of secondary school; he would have liked to have gone to university though.

Carlos works day to day in a small business manufacturing doors, windows and kitchen shelf units. He works about 9 hours daily and can see up to 15 customers per day. He believes he’s doing well because he’s very kind to customers and above all because he’s responsible and professional with them.

Carlos is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support they’ve provided he will be able to buy wood to do his jobs and improve his income which will make it possible for him to continue striving to make his greatest dream reality: to have a great workshop.
