Nilton Nicanor's story

Nilton is a very hard-working man, he has had to work from a young age as his parents had very little money. This is why he was only able to study until 5th grade, although he would have liked to study a degree in automotive engineering. His home is in the city of Chincha, which is known for its warm and attractive climate and, above all, its population who have a gift for preparing delicious regional cuisine. Nilton lives with his wife, with whom he has 2 children aged 2 and 10. The children are very naughty, but Nilton loves them and works and sacrifices every day to provide for them. Everyday, Nilton works in his car sales and repair workshop. He works around 8 hours a day and can serve up to 6 customers a day. He thinks that his business is going well as he is kind to his customers and works with integrity and a responsible manner. Nilton is very grateful to the Kiva lenders as, thanks to their help, he will be able to buy spare car parts and can sell them to his customers. In this way, he will improve his income and will be able to continue to work towards making his greatest dream a reality: "to give his children a good education and to own a very large workshop".
