Juan Romulo
Juan is 61 but feels as jovial as a 21-year-old. He lives in the city of Pisco, which boasts a warm and welcoming climate, beautiful beaches, and cheerful inhabitants. He has two sons aged 24 and 16, whom he has raised on his own as a single dad. He would give his life for them. Juan is very hard-working: every morning at dawn he starts his work as a transporter of goods, thanks to his trusty tricycle cart. He works around ten hours a day and sometimes tends to as many as 20 customers a day. He attributes his business's success to his amiability towards customers and his readiness to work. He is very grateful to Kiva lenders, since, thanks to their help, he will be able to renovate his beloved tricycle cart by performing maintenance on the brakes and the spokes, and buying new tires and inner tubes. This will make his transportation business that much safer, and Juan will able to carry loads without worrying and improve his income. This will help him to keep fighting every day to make his greatest dream come true: "I want to finish building my house and have a motorcycle parts shop".
