Carlos Antonio's story

Carlos is 55 years old, a hard worker, energetic and kind.

He started his business providing rides in his taxi 20 years ago, so he could support his children.

He's knocking on Kiva's door through MiCrédito, in order to request a loan to pay for the maintenance of his car, so he can provide better service.

His future goal is to buy another car for his business.
