A loan of $400 helped to buy tires for his car.

Edinson's story

Edinson, 42, is a hardworking man. He lives with his wife, Marleny, and their two daughters who he cares for in the house he bought 20 years ago. His main economic activity is public transport while his wife works in the fields; he helps her out in his spare time.

He states that he bought a car of his own a short time ago using his lifetime’s savings. This helped him to join a transportation firm where he’s begun to work with much dedication. “I've done well during this time because I’m well-known and in addition there’s no car in this zone,” he affirms.

This is his first Kiva loan and he feels happy because he’ll have the necessary capital to improve his business and thus his quality of life. He will use the requested 1,000 soles to buy tires for his car.
