Juan Luis
Juan is a 60 year-old man who lives in the city of Ica with his wife, whom he loves and whose support he appreciates. He is a very friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic person who dedicates all of his efforts toward getting ahead with his family. Juan was not able to study for a college degree, because from the time he was very young he had to work to support his parents, as he came from a large and very humble family. However, he really would have liked to have studied to become an automotive mechanic. At times, his wife cooks a rich ceviche to pamper him, because this is his favorite dish.

On his own initiative, with a lot of effort and dedication, Juan works each day as a taxi driver, providing transportation service in his city. He works each day from the very early hours of the morning, and he is able to work for about 10 hours a day. Juan feels comfortable doing this work, and he believes his business is doing well because he knows the routes where he can find the greatest number of passengers.

Juan is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, because thanks to the help that they are providing, he will be able to do some general maintenance work on his taxi and cover the bills for his insurance and licensing fees. In this way, Juan will be able to have his work tool in better condition, and so will be able to continue to work and exert himself so that he can achieve his greatest dream: to finish building his house.
