A loan of $550 helped for the maintenance of his mototaxi and the purchase of accessories for it.

Jose Santos's story

José Santos is 23 years old, single, and lives with his parents in the Olmos district, where the majority of the population is concentrated in rural zones. This is part of Lambayeque city and it is located one hour and forty-five minutes from the city of Chiclayo.

He drives a mototaxi (a motorized vehicle that consists of a motorcycle with a cabin attached, where transport services are carried out) with which he provides cargo and passenger transport services in the city of Olmos and the surrounding areas.

This service is very welcomed in the region since the people often use mototaxis to get to their residences, often located many kilometers from Olmos.

José Santos has asked Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 1500 soles to help him with the maintenance of his mototaxi and to purchase accessories for it.

He has previously taken out a loan financed by Kiva funds, and thanks to that loan he was able to make repairs to his vehicle.

Jose Santos is a responsible and hard-working young person. He uses his income to help his parents to sustain the household. His greatest wish is to continue growing as a businessman and to purchase M. mototaxis.

He is very thankful for the people that have chipped in to his loan with Kiva funds.
