Marvin Yuri's story
Marvin is a 26-year-old man. He is single and lives in the city of Ica in the district of Parcona with this parents and his brothers. He is a friendly, hard-working and enthusiastic person who has a large desire to overcome. Unfortunately, due to lack of financial resources, and since he has had to work since he was very young, Marvin was not able to study the profession of mechanical engineering that he would have wished. In his free time, he likes to play soccer and sometimes cooks a delicious lamb stew to share with his family. Of his own initiative, with a lot of effort and dedication, Marvin works as a taxi driver, providing transport service in his city. He works every day for about 12 hours and believes that things are going well for him because he knows the areas where he can find the greatest number of passengers. Marvin is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to the support provided he will be able to cover the costs of converting his taxi to natural gas. In this way, Marvin will be able to save a little more money using natural gas instead of gasoline and will be able to serve more passengers. So, he will continue working and exerting himself to achieve his big dream of having his own transport company.
