Cristhian Ferrer's story

Cristhian is a 33 years old, lives in the city of Ica with his wife and son, whom loves and are his main reason for living. He is a very kind and enthusiastic worker with a great desire to improve himself. Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources and his need to work from a young age to help his parents, Cristhian could not study for a proper career. In his spare time, he enjoys playing soccer with his friends and sometimes cooks a delicious "Tossed-Noodles" plate to share his family. On his own initiative, with much effort and dedication, Cristhian works as motorcycle taxi driver. He provides transportation services in his city. He also works in agriculture, as he has a small crop of cactus pears. He works everyday for approximately 10 hours and believes he is doing well considering he is experienced and responsible.
Cristhian is grateful to Kiva lenders, and thanks to their assistance, he will be able to perform repairs and maintenance, as well as purchase new tires, on his motorcycle-taxi. This way, Cristhian will have his taxi in top condition, which will assure his work and help him strive for his dream to have a properly constructed home for the safety and security of his family.
