Cesar's story

Cesar is 28 years old, married to Amalia, and has one child. They live in their own home. Cesar has always enjoyed cooking, so he started small food businesses in different parts of town.

Cooking has helped him to become well-known and to earn a good income. Since he has been able to generate good profits, Cesar opened a restaurant and eventually hired two assistants because of the good clientele. Cesar is known for preparing delicious fish and seafood dishes such as “ceviche” (seafood marinated in citrus juice), Peruvian fish soup, seafood stew, and other foods that are in high demand. He is also known for his cleanliness and for providing good service. Cesar has five years of experience, which has motivated him to fulfill one of his main objectives of acquiring another shop of his own in the future so that he can improve his earnings and serve more customers.

This is his second Kiva loan and he appreciates the financial support he has received that will allow him to continue forward. In addition, Cesar promises to complete his payments in a punctual manner. He is taking this opportunity to borrow 2,000 PEN so that he can buy fresh fish in bulk since he is an expert in these types of dishes.
