Adrian is married and has a young daughter. He has been working in transportation for some 8 years. He began as a driver's helper, then as a part-time driver, and for the last 6 years he has worked as a full-time salaried driver. During these 6 years he saved up to buy his own vehicle, which now needs to be repaired and maintained. This is why he needs the loan.
Adrian's wife works at home, and since Adrian's salary is the only source of income for the household he works all day long. They currently live in a rented house and one of Adrian's dreams is to buy a little house where his family could live. He is a responsible and energetic person and is very thankful to Kiva and Emprender [the Kiva field partner] for the confidence they have placed in him by granting him the loan.
