Juan Gualberto
This member is Señor Juan. He belongs to the “Ahorro es progreso” ["Saving is progress"] bank in the Saylla district of the city of Cusco, Peru. He is a young local municipal worker, but apart from his work in the public institution, he also has a small truck with which he provides a transportation service for construction materials such as sand, stone, and bricks.
His vehicle needs general maintenance, and it is for this purpose that he will invest this loan. He will purchase spare parts and accessories to keep his vehicle in working order.
Juan's great dream is to be able to buy a larger vehicle for this second job in order to make a better income.
Juan thanks Kiva for allowing him to develop his second job.
