Roberto's story

Roberto lives in the city of Guadalupe and learned to work when still very young because due to his parents’ limited resources he had to help them out. Because of this, he was only able to study up to fifth grade in secondary school but he would have loved to study Gastronomy. Roberto is very hardworking above all because he lives with his wife and they have three children who are 13, 14 and 2 years old who he loves very much and are the reason why he strives daily to get ahead.

With much effort and savings, Roberto managed to buy a mototaxi that he works with as a driver. He works about 10 hours daily and can take care of up to 25 customers per day. Roberto also has a small charcoal business; he sells it to restaurants that prepare charcoal grilled chicken. He believes that he’s getting ahead in his work because he’s very responsible and very much wants to get ahead.

Roberto is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support they've given him he will be able to service his mototaxi. With this improvement he will be able to continue working and supporting his family and above all make his greatest dream reality: to own a house.
