Juan
Juan is 45 years old, married, and has 2 children who live with him in his adobe house. Juan makes a living by selling CDs of Christian music, as well as bibles and small musical instruments at his post in his community's market. Previously, he sold his merchandise on foot and, with the profits that he obtained, he moved his small business to his home, which his wife is in charge of. To obtain more income, he established his post in the market.

He currently has about 7 years of experience in this business and this work permits him to spread Christianity in his community through music. Among his main clients are those in the religious group in which he participates and other people who like this genre.

He hopes to continue working with his characteristic motivation and, along with his wife, expand his business with more merchandise and a greater variety of products that he always sells. Thanks to the money that he has been able to earn, he can financially help his children, who are studying outside of the community.

This is his second loan through Kiva, and he hopes to obtain the financial support necessary to continue forward with his business. On this occasion, he seeks 3,000 nuevos soles in order to buy more music and video discs for his clients.
