Felix Alberto's story

Félix Alberto, 51, is married and has eight minor children who all attend school. He's from one of the towns in Chinandega, located in western Nicaragua, a coastal area where the predominant business is fishing because it's located on one of the beaches of Nicararagua.

His business is fishing, which he does with his own equipment. His children have learned the trade and they work. He has had the business for several years. He started at a very young age because he couldn't study for a university degree because he came from a very poor family and didn't have the economic resources. With his job he saved money until he was able to buy part of his fishing equipment.

Currently Félix is requesting financing to buy work equipment so he can upgrade the equipment he has.

One of his dreams is to be able to buy another boat so he can earn more income. He's very grateful to the Kiva lenders for the help they offer low-income people.
