Juan Jose's story

Juan Jose is a young man of 26, who would have liked to study cooking, but for various reasons was not able to fulfill that dream. After this stage of his life, he decided to move forward and generate the income he needed to constantly improve his quality of life.

Juan Jose lives in the city of Ica, a place that over the course of the last three years has faced positive change with respect to economic development, due to the influx of new department stores. These have generated countless steady jobs that are regularized under existing laws.

Juan Jose identified a new business idea, in view of the fact that shoppers and workers needed transportation to this new shopping center. That is why he decided to work at providing this type of service.

Due to the fact that he still doesn't have sufficient working capital, he has not been able to afford the processing of his driver's permit. That is why he has resorted to the Kiva lenders to help him in this stage of his life, so that he can begin to make progress independently.

Generating new income by working on a formal basis, he wishes to get his own mototaxi, and work harder and harder to buy a car, which is his great dream.
