Jose Luis
José is a 32-year-old, single man who lives with his mother and siblings in the city of Cañete, in the district of Imperial. He is a kind, hardworking, and enthusiastic person with dreams of excelling. Unfortunately, José was not able to study a professional career because he had to begin working at a very young age. He started working in construction and, when times were good, he put away money he later used to buy his own motor rickshaw.

With much determination and dedication, José leaves early each morning to travel the streets of Imperial in search of passengers. José believes he has been successful so far because he is well-known in the area and always makes sure to deliver good service to his passengers.

José is very grateful to Kiva lenders because with the help of this loan, he will be able to pay for the regular maintenance of his vehicle. He will make repairs on his motor, redo the upholstery, and put new tires on his motor rickshaw. With a better vehicle, José hopes to get more passengers and increase his profits. In this way, he will continue working and making an effort to realize his dream of one day owning his own construction company and his own house.
