Carlos Eduardo's story

Carlos is 28 years old and the father of 2 children, aged 6 and 3 months. He adores them and they are the reason he works so hard to give them the best and make them happy. His home is located in the Parcona district in Ica, Peru. The Parcona district is known for the "Stone Forest", which is visited by tourists, since it is a grouping of stones that are shaped liked animals and people, among other things. It is also known for the friendliness of its inhabitants. In his free time, Carlos likes to spend time with his children ad listen to music with them. He also loves it when his wife cooks one of his favorite dishes, the delicious “Cau Cau”. Due to his parents' lack of financial resources, he only finished high school, but he would have liked to study computer programming.

Day to day, Carlos goes out to the streets to work in his business as a motorcycle taxi driver. He can serve 40 customers day and works around 10 hours. On weekends or when there is an event, he works renting out stereo equipment and as a DJ. He thinks it is going well for him in this business because he works really hard and his family depends on it to have a better quality of life and be happy.

Carlos is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to their support he will be able to buy a new console for his work as a DJ. This will allow him to offer a better service and keep fighting day to day and for his family to feel proud of him and to make his dream come true: "giving a better quality of life to my family and having a discotheque".
