Cesar Augusto's story

Cesar is 40 years old. He lives in the district of Tinguiña, Ica, Peru. The district of Tinguiña is known for its very warm and hospitable climate. Cesar lives with his wife, who helps him a lot in everything he does. Cesar learned to work when he was very young, since his parents didn't have much income, and he had to work to be able to support them. It is for this reason that he was only able to go to school up to the fifth grade of secondary school. although he would have liked to study for a university degree.

Day after day Cesar works in his little stationery business. He works in his business about 10 hours a day, and he can assist about 20 customers daily. He believes that his business is going very well for him because he is very friendly to the customers and above all because he makes a great effort to advance.

Cesar is very grateful to the Kiva lenders since thanks to the help that they have offered him, he will be able to buy merchandise such as Christmas decorations, decorated paper, and Christmas paper, among other items. In this way he will be able to have a variety of products to offer his customers and continue improving his quality of life, which will allow him to continue working to be able to realize his greatest dream: to be a great businessman
