Felix Gerardo's story

Félix is a 61-year-old man living in Ica, Parcona District. He’s a very kind, hardworking, enthusiastic person who very much wants to get ahead. Thanks to his effort, Félix was able to study auto mechanics and he enjoys watching television in his free time; sometimes he cooks a delicious Arroz Chaufa [Chinese-style fried rice] which is his favorite food.

On his own initiative and with much effort and dedication notwithstanding his age, Félix works in his small upholstery business. He works every day starting very early in the morning and can work about 10 hours daily. He feels good doing his work and believes he does well because of the good work he does and the kind way he treats his customers.

Félix is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support provided he will be able to buy sewing machines and other supplies to equip his business so Félix can continue working and striving to reach his great dream of becoming a successful businessman.
