Felix's story

Félix is fifty-one and lives in Chimoré, in the region of Cochabamba. He is a farmer, but also works as a caretaker in an institution that is close by to where he lives. Félix is a simple and humble person, used to farm work. He was doing well as a farmer. However, his spouse took advantage of his honesty and left with his belongings and his money, never to be seen again. Félix was left to take care of and raise his son all by himself. In spite of the anguish caused by the betrayal he suffered, he managed to throw himself into his work in order to own what he now owns. He learned of the existence of Kiva loans and asks for help in order to buy a motorcycle that would enable him to provide taxi services. This would increase his income and thus improve the quality of life of both his son and himself.
