Artemio's story

Artemio is born and bred in the city of Piedras Negras, he has been living in the same place for more than 20 years. From very early on, he learned to cook, and today he is responsible the chef in a taco firm that is well-known in the city. He works from Tuesday to Sundays in the afternoons.

He is seeking help from Kiva to finish building the front part of his home, to make improvements to the exterior so that his home is beautiful to look at as it was affected by the flooding last month. In the future, he dreams of setting up his own taco business so that he can work there in the morning and therein increase his family income. He will also be able to give more people work. Artemio hopes to finish him home so that his family can live comfortably.
