Luis Alberto's story
Luis is a man of 48. He works every day to offer the best to his son, who is 16 and is close to the culmination of his school years. Luis lives in the city of Ica, a city that is characterized by the economic growth that has materialized thanks to the inauguration of new commercial centers. These have permitted improvements in the quality of life of the people, along with knowledge of other types of sales, new business ideas, and above all the increase in jobs, which cause the city to develop along with its people. Luis now provides public transportation service in his own moto taxi. He works about 10 hours a day; in this time he can serve approximately 40 customers by himself, due to the quantity of competition that exists in the city. With the help of the Kiva lenders, Luis will be able to take care of some procedures (paperwork) that he needs to do and also cover some personal expenses. He truly wants to improve his quality of life and continue offering his service in order to continually improve his income and thus offer the best to his young son.
