Nilders Yoel's story

Nilders is a young man of 22 who lives with his wife in the city of Ica. It is in the only coastal plains area on Peru's southern coast, where the Andes run farther inland. Around Ica there are vast deserts, like the Pampas de Lancha and Pampas de Villacurí, that experience intense heat, but there are also beaches, hot springs, varied marine plant-life, museums and excellent hotels. Nilders enjoys music, which is his favorite pastime, and like any good Peruvian he loves food. One of his favorite dishes is chicken with rice. He studied into high school, and he would love to study electronics. With a lot of hard work and dedication he was able to start his own entertainment business and renting sound equipment. He can work around four hours a week, depending on the length of the events he works. His wife also helps with household expenses working as a kitchen helper in a restaurant. He believes that the business is going well creatively and with satisfied customers. Nilders is very grateful and happy with Kiva lenders because thanks to your help he will be able to purchase headphones and a laptop, which will help him better implement his business so he can keep working to fulfill his biggest dream: to have his own home and his own car.
