Giancarlo's story

Giancarlo is a 30 year old man. He is happily married and lives with his wife and small son in the city of Ica of the Santiago district. Thanks to the help from his parents, Giancarlo was able to study the technical field of computing. In his free time he likes to watch television with his little one and once in a while prepares a very tasty ceviche to share with his family. Three years ago, with a lot of work and enthusiasm Giancarlo started a small business of computer repair, graphic design, printing and photocopy. He works in his business about 10 hours a day and can take care of an average of 30 customers. Giancarlo also owns two moto-taxis which he rents to other drivers. He feels good about his business and believes that it is going well since his customers recommend him for his speed and good service. Giancarlo is very thankful to the lenders from Kiva, since thanks to their help he will be able to buy new tires and will be able to provide routine maintenance to his moto-taxis. This way Giancarlo can count on vehicles in good condition which he can continue to use to bring in income. With his income he hopes to assure the education and well being of his little one.
