Nelson Gilberto
Nelson Gilberto is a native of the municipality of El Sauce. He is a 24 year-old youth who has worked ever since he was only 15 years old, helping with the household expenses in his mother's house, because they were not able to rely on the help of his father.

He now works as a cleaning employee; at 4 in the morning he gets up to start working at 5am, sweeping the various streets of the city.

At this time, he needs a loan to buy a bicycle. This will serve as a means of transportation to get to his work center, because he has to be very punctual, and it's quite a distance from his house.

He trusts and requests the Kiva lenders and Ceprodel to support him with his request, so that he can accomplish his goal of buying a means of transportation.
