Teofilo Moises's story

Moises is a very hardworking and optimistic man. He lives with his spouse and his four-year-old son, whom he adores, despite the fact that he is very mischievous and makes his hair gray.

His house is in the city of Ica, a city characterized by a warm climate all year round. Many tourists visit the city, because the lake of Huacachina is located there. It is also an agricultural city, especially known for growing cotton, asparagus and grapes.

When Moises has free time, he likes to read books to distract himself. He also likes to eat one of his favorite dishes, the delicious "Escabeche de Pollo" (marinated chicken).

With plenty of happiness and enthusiasm, Moises has a business selling products for the home. He dedicates about 8 hours daily to his business, and he can serve about twenty clients per day. He believes that the business is going well because he is very friendly and attentive to his customers.

Moises is very thankful for the Kiva lenders, because this is the second time which they are supporting him. With their support, he will buy merchandise for his business, such as kitchen accessories. This will allow him to have a greater variety of products and improve his income, in order to continue fighting day after day to make his dream come true: "To give my son a good education and a better quality of life."
