Filimon's story

Filimon is 55 years old. He is single with and adult son who lives on his own. He is originally from Achuapa, located in the northern part of the country. He is a responsible and hardworking man interested in self-improvement. Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources, he had to start working very young in order to help with household expenses and therefore could not complete primary school.

Thanks so his spirit of continuous self-improvement he has had a business fixing radios for 9 years. He has a shop in town. He enjoys this work very much as it has been his livelihood and that of his family. He works 10 hours a day offering services to both regular and occasional clients. The loan will be used as working capital to purchase replacement parts for televisions and radios such as cables, transistors, speakers, tubes, screens, screws, and glue. Filimon is thankful for the assistance that the Kiva investors provide to people with scarce resources and to poor countries like Nicaragua so that they have an opportunity to obtain decent work.
