Balfre
Balfre is 46 years old and married to Anabel. The couple have three children. Only Esteban and Carlos are still in school. They are in their second year of high school and third year of junior high. Their eldest son is married and has his own family. Balfre has been a taxi driver for 12 years.

Balfre says that he decided to start out in this business as he wanted to find a way of helping his wife cover their household expenses, improve their quality of life, support their children in their studies and become more financially solvent. He will invest the loan that he received in having maintenance work carried out on his car (tires, oil change, etc.)

One of Belfre's goals for his business is to invest in it a lot more so that he can make it grow quickly. He would like to save up to buy another car so that he can make more and better income. He will also start to save some money so that he can guarantee his family's future. Balfre is very grateful to Fundación Realidad and Kiva lenders for all their support and, above all, for the trust they are placing in him.
