A loan of $1,125 helped to buy tyres and maintain his vehicle.

Victor Danilo's story

Victor is a hard working man. He lives in the city of Ica, a city known for one of its main business activities; farming. As well as it warm climate during all the year. Like a good Peruvian he likes food a lot. In his free time he enjoys playing football with his friends and neighbours in order to forget his worried when he is in a bad mood.

Victor works as a taxi driver on the streets of his city. He spends around ten hours a day working and can cater to up to 45 customers. He works mainly early in the morning which is when the service costs a little more and he can earn more.

Victor is very grateful for the Kiva loans as thanks to the support they have given him he will be able to buy new tyres and carry out maintenance on his vehicle. This way he will have a vehicle in better conditions for working and he will continue fighting in order to fulfil his biggest dream: "to have his own house".
