A loan of $1,100 helped to buy wire, clear coat, and other supplies, and to improve his workshop.


Orestes Felix's story

Orestes is 65 years old and lives in the city of Chincha. To be able to cover his household and family expenses, he works in a motor rewinding shop. He works almost the whole day and can attend as many as ten clients each day. Orestes believes he is getting ahead because he treats his clients well and, above all, works very responsibly.

Orestes is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, as it is thanks to their help that he will be able to buy wire, clear coat, and other things, as well as make improvements to his shop. In this way he can offer his clients better service and fight towards realizing his great dream: "To have a much larger workshop."
