Angel Aparicio's story

Ángel, 40, is single. He lives in the city of Ica with his sister, whom he loves very much and thanks for all the support she has given him.

He's a very kind, hardworking, and enthusiastic person who has a great desire to improve himself. Unfortunately, because of the need to work from a very young age to pay for his expenses, he couldn't study for a professional career, but he very much would like to have been able to do it.

With great effort and enthusiasm, two years ago Ángel started his small business selling groceries and beverages such as beer and wine. Every day he starts work very early, working approximately 12 hours. He believes it's going well for him because of the variety of products and the pleasant manner with which he serves his customers.

Ángel is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to their help he will be able to buy merchandise such as rice, sugar, oil, soda, and beverages, among other things. This way Ángel will have a better stocked business, with which he hopes to increase his sales and his income, which he will use in the near future to be able to expand his business.
