Filder
Filder, 33, is married to Delaida and they have two children who live with them in their own home. Filder sells shoes at the Sunday market in his district where other merchants sell clothing. Many customers, including farmers, visit the city to make their weekly purchases. Filder started his business eight years ago, encouraged by his wife, in order to take care of the family. He used the money he had saved from working in different jobs to buy his first batch of shoes which he sold as a street vendor. Later on he decided to sell his goods at the Sunday fair in his district which is organized by the local authorities. He was able to consolidate his business which has helped his economy.

At his stall we can find different kinds of men's and women's shoes and slippers as well as baby and school children's shoes. He is very happy with his work because he earns a good income. Over time he wants to expand his business and become a wholesale supplier.

This is his second Kiva loan and he is grateful for the financial support and committed to paying back the loan on time. This time he has requested 3,000 PEN to buy merchandise such as women's and children's shoes, and footwear for farmers.

Filder tiene 33 años, esta casado con Delaida y tiene 2 hijos con quienes vive en su casa propia. Filder se dedica a la venta de calzados en una feria dominical de su distrito donde al igual que otros comerciantes de prendas para vestir reciben a un sin numero de clientes quienes son personas del campo que llegan a la ciudad con el objetivo de realizar sus compras semanales. Se inició hace mas de 8 años motivado por su esposa ya que tenía la responsabilidad de velar por el bienestar de su familia. Fue así que uso dinero que había ahorrado hasta entonces trabajando en diversos oficios y compró su primer lote de calzados que vendió de manera ambulante. Tiempo después decidió incursionar como vendedor en la feria dominical de su distrito promovido por las autoridades de su localidad , logrando así consolidar su negocio en beneficio de su economía.
Podemos hallar en su puesto diversos zapatos y zapatillas para damas y caballeros, así como zapatitos para bebes y escolares. Se siente muy contento con su trabajo ya que le permite tener muy buenos ingresos económicos. Con el tiempo desea ampliar su negocio de calzados y convertirse en un proveedor mayorista.
Este es su segundo préstamo con Kiva y se siente agradecido por el apoyo financiero que recibe para seguir adelante, además se compromete a pagar sus cuotas de manera puntual. En está oportunidad desea contar con 3,000 nuevo soles para comprar mercadería tales como calzados para damas y niños; así como zapatillas para los agricultores.
