A loan of $1,125 helped to buy a motor taxi.

Erick Cristopher's story

Erick, 28, enjoys playing soccer with his friends in his free time as he considers it to be a relaxing activity after spending the day sitting in his vehicle. This young man is currently living in the city of Ica, a place where one can tour the enormous sand dunes on the famous tubular dune buggies.

Erick works an average of 10 hours a day, time that brings him to different destinations throughout the district of Parcona, Ica, Perú, the place where he is employed. His work is allowing him to progress bit by bit and he is very happy with the income he has received.

With the help of Kiva, Erick will buy a motor taxi, as he is currently working with a rented one. With this support he will earn additional income as he will no longer incur rental costs. Knowing that he will increase his income and profits will allow him to enjoy the dream of owning his own home.
