Juan De Dios's story

Juan de Dios is a client who is requesting a loan for the first time at the institution on the recommendation of his father who is a former client of the group Jesus te Ama. He drives a taxi in the evenings and in the mornings, he processes qualification certificates for the University Evangelica de Santa Cruz. The money will be invested in the repair of his car. Several days ago, when Juan de Dios went to Av, Camacho to get his car in order to return home, he realized that the vehicle had been hit in the front wheel assembly, leaving it in terrible condition. Juan de Dios also sells meat. Since he was very young, his father taught him the business and they traveled to the villages in search of livestock to buy and then sell in the local market. Today the client’s goal is to open his own butcher shop and so far he has managed to save money to buy equipment and enter into a rental contract. He just needs a saw and some hooks which will enable him to gain long term customers. He is very grateful to Emprender and Kiva for trusting him with a loan.
