Vicente's story

Mr. Vicente has been living in the city of Piedras Negras for 45 years. He is a married man and very responsible with everything he lives his family so that they lack for nothing. He is the father of 3 children. One son goes to school out of town and will graduate soon. He wife helps him financially, because she works at a very well known publishing house in this city as a human resources manager, a place she has worked at for 5 years.

Vicente has a business selling wooden furniture and household items such as stoves, living room sets, and washers, both used and new. He has had this business for approximately 5 years.

He is asking for help through Kiva in order to open another business on a very busy street. His brother will help him run it, but he will be the owner of both places. Vicente will be the one running the present business. In the future, he would also like to have his own furniture store selling all new items and keep offering quality to his distinguished customers.
