He is mostly interested in repairing motorcycles and motorcycle cars, being the most common type of transportation in his region. With MFP (Kiva Field Partner) has has had 3 loans and even though there have been some difference of opinion with his colleages at the Community Bank, Carlos remains with the same gruop because he knows these types of discussions happen. His will for self improvement and the success of the group remains. The funds that he is requesting will be used to purchase spare parts for his motorcycle car. He will also invest in the purchase of fishing gear to use with his boat.
