Luis Enrique
Luis, 39, lives in the city of Mala, a city noted for its agriculture especially bananas, medlar and broad beans, among others. It’s very cold in the winter but in summer is visited by many tourists because beautiful beaches are found there. When Luis has a little free time he enjoys reading the newspaper very much, especially to solve the crosswords. He also enjoys the typical food of the country and one of his favorite dishes is the delicious “Picante.” Due to his limited economic resources he was only able to finish 11th grade but would have liked to study auto mechanics very much.

With much effort and savings Luis managed to buy a mototaxi that he works daily producing sustenance for his home since he’s the father of three children he loves very much and wants to move ahead so that they will be better than him; his wife encourages him every day to continue striving. He believes that he does well in his business because he very much wants to get ahead and because of that works hard and above all with much patience.

Luis is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to their help he will be able to buy a mototaxi that he’ll be able to lease out to have an additional source of household income and continue to give his children an education and above all continue striving daily to make his great dream a reality: to build his house out of substantial materials since it’s currently adobe.
