Roy Luis's story

Roy is 39 years old. He lives in the city of Pucallpa with his partner. He is a hardworking and enthusiastic man who dedicates all of his efforts to getting ahead and succeeding in life. Unfortunately, due to the necessity of having to work since very young, he was not able to study the profession of nursing, which he greatly wanted to do, however he dreams of still being able to do so one day. In his spare time he likes strolling through the warm and welcoming streets of the city with his partner and friends and occasionally enjoys eating the delicious “Lomo saltado.”

On his own initiative and thanks to his partner’s support, Roy started his small business selling spare parts for small vehicles. In addition he sells beer, both wholesale and retail. He works in his business approximately 12 hours daily during which he takes care of an average of 8 customers. Roy believes that his business is doing well due to the quality, good prices and friendly service that he provides his customers.

Roy is very grateful to Kiva lenders because, thanks to their help, he was able to buy cases of automobile oil as well as parts in general. In this way he will be able to have his business well stocked and increase sales and income. Thus he hopes to turn his small business, little by little, into a larger shop selling spare parts in general.
