Vasiliy's story

This is not Vasiliy's first loan from Kiva. Having been very satisfied at the quality of the services received Vasiliy was able to not only ready his vehicle for further service, but having completed the needed welding and painting he was able to use revenue received to give his home a small remodeling by getting a few pieces of furniture and glassing in the balcony. Vasiliy plans to buy a 1984 Mercedes 123 and use it as a taxi. His father-in-law is currently working on it, while providing transportation services with a rented vehicle. Vasiliy plans to put his father in law behind the wheel of the new car and is already working on his own transportation.
