Cesar Calixto's story
Cesar is an enthusiastic and hardworking young man of twenty-five. His residence is in the city of Ica, characterized by its year-round warm and welcoming climate. There's agricultural, too, including cotton, grapes, asparagus, etc. In his free time, Cesar likes to go out for a walk because it relaxes him and helps clear his mind. His great optimism and effort enabled him to get a degree in physical education. Cesar goes to work every day as a a motor taxi driver. He was motivated to get this type of job because he wasn't able to find work after getting out of school, so he took the initiative and now he's a driver. He works at his business around twelve hours per day and is able to serve nearly twenty clients. He thinks business is going well because he provides good customer service. Cesar is really grateful to Kiva lenders because, thanks to the help they've provided, he'll be able to do maintenance on his vehicle and buy a set of tires. The improvements will allow him to drive a vehicle that's in good condition, and, above all, safe for his clients and himself. This way he can keep fighting day by day to realize his greatest dream which is, "to have a house of his own."
