Aquiles Rafael
Aquiles is a very hard-working man. He lives in the city of Pucallpa, and every day he works very hard in order to advance. It is for this reason that each day he works hard in his job as a maintenance technician for machines in gymnasiums in his city.

Aquiles is very grateful to the Kiva lenders since thanks to the help that they have offered him, he will be able to buy some furnishings for his house, since now he doesn't have any. Thus he will be able to improve the quality of life of his family, and he will continue striving to be able to realize his greatest dream: "to have his own workshop."
