It is known for the economic development that it has undergone in the last few years and for the increase and development of micro-business people.

Jhonny offers technical service repairing refrigerators. This has allowed him to work an average of 8 hours a day and develop his technical studies in Industrial Mechanics. He tells us that he learned about this business thanks to working as an assistant in a workshop. Over time he was able to buy the tools he needed and get ahead.

With help from the Kiva lenders, Jhonny will be able to buy a motorcycle. This will allow him to get around and arrive more quickly to wherever his customers need him. When he is able to satisfy his customers, he knows that he will improve his income and be able to have his own workshop. in the future, this will enable him to make his dream come true of owning his own home.
