Carlos Alberto's story

Carlos is a 30-year-old man. He is single and lives in the city of Ica. He is a very kind, hardworking, and enthusiastic person. He has a great desire to get ahead.

Thanks to his efforts and help from his parents, Carlos was able to study a technical career of Computation and Data Processing. In his free time he likes to play soccer with his friends and neighbors. Sometimes he cooks a delicious Carapulcra with dry soup to share with his family.

With a lot of dedication and enthusiasm, Carlos works daily as a taxi driver. Everyday he works starting early in the morning. He can work approximately 10 hours daily. He thinks he does well because he knows the areas to find a greater quantity of passengers and because he is kind and respectful to his clients.

Carlos is very grateful for the Kiva loans. The loans offer aid to help him with the documents needed to obtain a circulation license. Also, he will purchase new tires for his car. With this his car will be in better condition and he can work without problems.

Carlos expects to continue to work hard to purchase another car and expand his business in the future. Therefore, little by little, Carlos will be able to do well.
