Gilberto's story

Gilberto is a young man who is 23 years old and who lives with his mother and grandmother in the community of Hornitos. It is located 20 minutes from the city of Morrope (a district belonging to the department of Lambayeque).

Gilberto has a car and he uses it to provide public transport services, covering a route from Caracucho to Morrope (the route is approximately 30 minutes long).

Gilberto doesn't have the luxury of taking a day off work. The money that he earns is enough to cover his basic needs and to help with the household expenses. This is the reason why he works every day on a steady schedule.

The loan that he requests from Edpyme Alternativa (Kiva Field Partner) is in the amount of 2000 nuevos soles. He needs the funds to invest in maintenance repairs to his car. Lately it has been experiencing some mechanical problems that has prevented Gilberto from working efficiently and this has resulted in a decreased revenue.
