Freddy is 34 years old and is a responsible individual. He lives with his parents and young child in his own home. He learned how to paint from his father from a young age and since then he has practised this trade. He says that although he had opportunities to work in other jobs, he always wanted to work with paintbrushes and art. He has a small business that works with tenders and contracts in the central rainforest, “we have little competition in this part of the country", he explains.

His business is doing very well, which is why he would soon like to buy the machines he needs to speed up his work and in this way, secure better contracts. He says that he secret is prioritizing quality, which is why he always works with an architect. This is his first loan with Kiva, and he feels grateful for the support received. For this reason, he promises to pay his loan repayments on time. Freddy will invest the money in buying a compressing machine to paint quicker.
