Carlos Jesus's story

Carlos is 39 years old and lives in the Parcona district, which is known for its hot climate and agriculture production, especially cotton. When Carlos has free time, he likes to play soccer with his neighborhood friends. He also likes to eat one of his favorite dishes, the delicious "Ceviche," a fish dish. He only completed secondary studies but he would have liked to study Mechanical Engineering.

Carlos works hard in his business as a taxi driver. He works around 10 hours a day and service up to 40 customers in one day. He believes that his business is going well because he is friendly and, above all, always very responsible when he drives. For this reason, people always recommend him.

Carlos is very grateful for the Kiva loans and thanks to the help that they ave given him, he will be able to buy merchandise such as rice, sugar, noodles, household cleaning products, mixed vegetables, soft drinks among others to start his grocery business, among other products. This way, he will be able to increase his income and quality of life, and to keep working in order to achieve his greatest desire: to have a car.
