Juan Carlos's story

Juan Carlos is a new client who works in public transportation. He also uses his minibus as a part time school bus for the Monserrat School in the Chasquipampa area. He has worked in this field for three years. Before that he worked as an auditor for a company in the city of El Alto.

Thanks to the good salary he received from this institution, he was able to build a 50 square meter house in the Pedregal area. He also rents his previous house in the city of El Alto.

Once he finished the house where he currently lives, Juan Carlos realized that he had neglected his relationship with his only child and his wife. Therefore, he decided to leave his job and work in public transportation in order to spend more time at home.

Juan Carlos currently owns three automobiles, two Toyotas and a minibus. He is thinking of selling one of the cars he rents out to the current driver (they only need the papers to close the deal). With this money from selling the automobile and the money from this loan he plans on buying a new car, a Toyota Sprinter.

His idea is to once again work in the area of his career and to make the three automobiles work for him to increase his income. He is very grateful to Emprender and Kiva for the confidence given in granting the loan.
