Ivan's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to do general maintenance and to buy shock absorbers for his taxi.
Ivan is 30, single, and lives in the city of Pisco. He is friendly, hardworking, enthusiastic, and focuses all his efforts on getting ahead. Ivan wasn't able to study agronomy in college because he lacked the money to go to school and had to start working at an early age. In his free time, he likes to watch movies, and he occasionally prepares a delicious pork rind and fish dish to share with his family. With dedication and on his own initiative, Ivan provides taxi service in his city. He owns the car he uses for work. Ivan works about 10 hours every day and feels that business is good because he knows where to find the most passengers. Ivan thanks the Kiva lenders, whose support will allow him to do general maintenance and to buy shock absorbers for his taxi. Ivan's taxi will be in better shape, and he will be able to continue offering service, working, and striving to achieve his great dream of owning other cars to rent.
