Gerson's story

Gerson is a hard-working man, he is 38 years old, married, and lives in Yarinacocha with his family. His family is the greatest motivation he has and it's because of them that he strives every day to be able to bring them a better future. Currently he works for the city as a mechanic, providing maintenance services on the vehicles. It is going very well because he is a very responsible person, entrepreneurial, honest, and has desires to get ahead. He also has a mechanic shop at his home and he provides services of excellent quality to all of his customers.

Gerson is grateful for the Kiva lenders because with the support that they have provided he will be able to buy a living room set for his home as well as mechanical parts for his work. With these, he will obtain larger earnings and will keep striving ahead to be able to fulfill his greatest dream: "Have his own workshop for cars and heavy machinery."
