Yoel Henry's story

Yoel is 23 years old and lives with his wife and young son in the city of Imperial, a city that is characterized by its warm climate, agriculture and the generosity of its inhabitants. Yoel is a young very hard worker that used to work as a mason in construction sites but had many accidents and thankfully it was never serious and decided to work in another field. Thanks to Yoel’s hard work and constant struggle he saved enough money and was able to buy two motorcycle taxis. He works with one motorcycle taxi and the other he rents and is able to have a bit more income. Yoel has worked hard for about two years and believes that his efforts but above all God’s help and the unconditional support of his wife have helped his business do well.

Yoel is very grateful to the Kiva loaners since thanks to their help he will be able to make some maintenance repairs on his motorcycle taxis as well as change the seats to improve the vehicles and provide better service to his customers. This will allow him to have better income and give his family a better quality of life as well as to continue working each day to see his greatest dream come true, “see his son become a professional and to start a business in his home.”
