Guillermo Manuel's story

Guillermo is a 25 year old young man who lives in the city of Ica. The city is characterized by its hot climate throughout all seasons of the year and also by the Laguna de Huacachina (Huacachina Lake), which is surrounded by sand dunes and is one of the tourist attractions of the city. Like a good Peruvian, Guillermo greatly enjoys food and one of his favorite dishes is the very delicious “loma saltado.” He studied until the fifth grade in high school but would have liked to study systems engineering.

Guillermo currently works as a motor taxi driver and spends about 12 hours every day at his business and can transport up to 45 clients a day. He believes his business is doing well because he provides good service to his customers.

Guillermo is very grateful to Kiva lenders since with their help he will be able to buy car radio equipment for his vehicle so that his customers will feel more comfortable while using his service. Thus they will be satisfied and he will continue working and fighting day after day to fulfill his great dream of owing his own motor taxi.
