A loan of $325 helped make repairs on his moto-car.

Irineo's story

Irineo is a member of the Mercedes Virgin Community Bank. He is a married father of four children, ages 21, 16, 14 and 12. The youngest three are studying at a state school. He had a job in civil construction, but there was not always work and he eventually lost his job and was unemployed, which was mortifying for him. He started raising livestock eight years ago, and with the earnings from that he bought a moto-car to do a taxi service.

Irineo is requesting a loan of 1000 soles to fix his vehicle. Since he is a member with Kiva partner Finca, he has received his orientation for his business and it has helped him administer his business better. He enjoys the companionship with the other members. Irineo's dream is to work hard for his children and give them the best.
