Armando Fredy's story

Armando is a very hardworking young man. He lives in the city of Carhuaz, located in the Peruvian sierra with temperatures between 11 and 21 °C. This city is also characterized by having one of the most popular tourist attractions, which is the Nevado de Pastoruri. It also has the "Shaqsha" dancers. Armando lives with his wife and from their union they have a small son for whom Armando would give his life. He loves him very much and that is why he works hard to be able to offer him a worthy life and above all make him into a good person. Armando is a young man who really wants to get ahead and that is why every day he goes out to work as a taxi driver. With this work, he pays for his household expenses. He believes that his work is going well for him because he is very friendly with his passengers and above all because he is charismatic.

Armando is very grateful to the Kiva lenders for the help they have offered him. With it, he will be able to do general maintenance on his vehicle and that way have a vehicle in good condition and be able to drive more safely. This way, he can keep fighting to make his biggest dream come true: "having a taxi business and giving his son a good career".
