Maximo
Maximo is 62 years old and he is married to Victoria. They have 3 children and the family lives in a home made of adobe. Maximo works in passenger transportation, moving people between different areas in the region, and there are a lot of people that need his services. Initially, he rented the vehicles that he drove and operated a "colectivo" service, but thanks to his savings, he was able to buy his first vehicle.

Maximo drives through various areas in the region, transporting passengers that sometimes become friends and that make his work comforting. On occasion, the rain is inconvenient because many of the streets he uses are not paved, and this makes the driving more complicated.

As time goes by, he hopes to continue working because he is motivated to reach his goals, which are to repair his vehicle and also to improve his home's construction with better materials. This is his first loan with Kiva and he is very thankful for the financial support that he is receiving so that he can get ahead. Also, he promises to comply with the repayment schedule and to always pay punctually. He is seeking a loan of 1,000 soles so that he can do preventive maintenance to his vehicle and to keep it in an optimal condition since it is his main source of income.

Máximo tiene 62 años y esta casado con Victoria y tiene 3 hijos con quienes vive en su casa construida a base de adobe. Máximo se dedica al transporte de pasajeros entre distintos distritos de su localidad donde existe mucha demanda de pasajeros. Inicialmente alquilaba los vehículos que conducía para realizar el servicio colectivo pero gracias a sus ahorros logró adquirir su primera unidad propia. Máximo recorre diversas arterias de su zona transportando pasajeros con quienes muchas veces entabla amistades y hacen de su trabajo muy reconfortante. En ocasiones la lluvia es su principal inconveniente pues las vías por donde circula no son asfaltadas haciendo de su labor algo complicada. Con el paso de los años espera seguir trabajando con la motivación que lo caracteriza para cumplir sus objetivos el cual es renovar su unidad de transporte así como concretar la construcción de su vivienda a base de material noble. Este es su primer préstamo con Kiva y se siente agradecido por el apoyo financiero que recibe para seguir adelante, además se compromete a pagar sus cuotas de manera puntual. En está ocasión desea contar con 1,000 nuevo soles para realizar un mantenimiento preventivo a su vehículo y tenerlo siempre en óptimas condiciones ya que es su principal herramienta de trabajo.
