Edgar Ramiro's story

Edgar is 62 years old and lives in the city of Otavalo with his daughter and her family. Edgar has over 30 years' experience as a professional driver, and works transporting merchandise by truck.

For many years Edgar lived outside the country, looking for other opportunities, but had to return to work providing his services as a driver for different businesses and on his own. He wants to be able to acquire his own truck. For that reason he has been saving the earnings he makes from his job. He currently works in a vehicle owned by his daughter which needs mechanical work.

Edgar is very grateful to Kiva because if he fixes his daughter's vehicle he will be able to continue working and saving to buy his own vehicle. That would allow him to help support the household.
