A loan of $525 helped to purchase tires and to maintain the minibus, as well as to buy gas for its operation.

Angel's story

Mr. Angel is a new client who has been working as a minibus driver for 14 years. His wife Angelica helps as an assistant who calls out destinations. They have 4 children, two school-age children and two preschool girls. Mr. Angel has only one other debt apart from the loan he requests through Kiva, and he has a good credit history. His family is very close and they help each other mutually, both as a couple and as an extended family. In fact, recently they suffered the loss of a relative and they fulfilled the payments of the debts that he had.
