Felix Antonio's story

Felix Antonio, single, is 54 years old. He has five grown children. He is originally from León which is located in the western part of the country. In his free time he enjoys watching TV and drinking a cup of coffee. He is a hard worker, responsible, with hopes of succeeding. Unfortunately he could not finish school because of a lack of financial resources. He was obliged to work from an early age.

Thanks to his conquering spirit he has a business repairing electrical appliances such as stoves, fans, refrigerators, radios, sound equipment, and lighting dedicating 10 hours daily to his business from a room at his house.

He plans to use the loan to invest in working capital to buy parts for electric appliances in order to repair and provide better service to the clients, such as speakers, transistors, tubes, screws, television screens, containers, and wires. Felix Antonio is grateful to Kiva lenders for helping people with scarce resources and poor countries such as Nicaragua in order to have a way to work decently.
