Jose Luis's story

José Luis is a 33 year old man living in the city of Pisco, Perú, a place currently known for the great advances it’s made in promoting tourism the last few years. This beautiful place welcomes all visitors to its beautiful beaches and its renowned Ballestas Islands. It is in this city that José Luis works, a man who is dedicated to providing transportation services. José Luis has been a taxi driver for 9 years. He started out driving leased mototaxis but in time and with much effort he managed to get the opportunity to buy his own mototaxi which he’s been paying for little by little over the years. He enjoys his activity very much because he’s always liked transporting his customers. Currently, José Luis needs to buy some tools and to pertinent service to his mototaxi and this is why he called on the Kiva program so that it can help him reach his objective. José Luis is sure that his income will increase because his mototaxi will no longer be malfunctioning and if any malfunction should arise his tools will provide the necessary support. He is a man who over the years has been exerting himself very much for what he has so he knows that he can still give much more of himself to reach his great dream: “To buy more mototaxis and have his own transportation firm.”
