Victor
Victor is 34 years old and lives in Pisco, a town with beautiful beaches and a temperate climate. The Islas Ballestas are located here too; they are much visited by tourists throughout the year. Victor lives with his wife who helps him with everything that he does--she is his right hand.

Victor puts a lot of effort into his job as a rickshaw driver. Like many people in our country, he works from sunrise to sunset as there aren’t many people doing this work. He says it’s a decent job. He works around ten hours a day and can have up to fifteen customers. His business is doing well as he’s a hardworking man and always looks after his customers well.

Victor is very grateful to Kiva donors and thanks everyone for their help. He will buy tires for his vehicle with the loan and also have it serviced. This will ensure that his rickshaw is well-maintained so he will be able to transport his passengers safely. He is working to fulfill his biggest dream of providing a better standard of living for his family and support for his parents.
