Ernesto's story

Ernesto is from the city of Piedras Negras. He is a hard working individual. He has a business selling tacos and hamburgers. He has his own employees working there while he rebuilds houses, where he also has employees, but not many. Those that work for him say that he is very thorough in every detail, which is why he does such good quality work.

Ernesto is a dreamer, and that is reflected in his work since after finishing it, it looks very beautiful and special. Likewise, he writes poetry. He transforms everything that happens in his life into poetry. Years ago, an article publishing one his poems appeared in the city’s newspaper.

Ernesto seeks support through Kiva to buy merchandise for his business and increase sales, as he was among those affected by the flood and he lost a large part of the raw materials used in his business.
