A loan of $1,125 helped to buy a laptop and party lights.

Franklin Giovanny's story

Franklin is 32 years old. He considers his work to also be a hobby because he really enjoys what he does. He rents sound systems and lights. On average he works 5 to 7 hours a day, working all week. He usually is able to offer his services to an average of 5 customers per week.

Franklin knows that this type of equipment is in high demand for rental for parties and special events; he also knows that you have to offer a good price to customers since there is a lot of competition for rental services in the city of Ica, Peru, which is where he is currently living and working. He is aware that it is good to always have a little extra money, which is why he also works as an assistant in a bakery.

With the help of this loan through Kiva Franklin will be able to add to the sound equipment he has. He wants to incorporate a computerized system, which is why he will buy a laptop and party lights. This will allow him to become more well known, not just in the city of Ica, but also in surrounding cities. With his profits he will invest in higher quality sound equipment and he also wants to own his own home.
