Luis Alfredo's story

Luis Alfredo is a responsible person and a hard worker. He lives in Camaná, a city known for it's beautiful beaches, for it's production of rice and for it's warm climate. Luis enjoys dancing during his free time and says that music can distract you from problems you may have. Like a good Peruvian, he loves food, his favorite dish being fried fish. He studied up until the fourth year of secondary school, but he would have liked to study electronics.

Luis drives a mototaxi. He works 10 hours a day. He wakes up very early to begin working and in one day he can serve as many as 50 customers. Many of his customers also wake up early to begin their work. He believes that his business is doing well because he is always friendly with customers.

Luis is very thankful for the loans from Kiva because they have brought him support to be able to perform maintenance on his mototaxi. He has been able to repair the motor on his vehicle. With this improvement he has a vehicle that is more safe and his customers can have more trust in using his service. As a result he can continue saving to be able to attain his great dream of owning his own home.
