Juan Jose's story

Juan José is a 34-year-old-man who is married to Angélica. He works in the public transport service. He owns a radio taxi company in the city of Cochabamba. Currently, he lives south of the city about 6km away.

He does not own the house where he lives but rents it with his wife. None of them have dependent children. With the loan from Kiva they plan to buy a vehicle. With this new vehicle, Juan José will have a higher income and another way to satisfy the needs of his family because currently, his wife does not have a job.

This is why we have told you this little story so that you all can get to know Juan José.
