Cosme's story

Cosme is now 37 years old, he is married with 2 children. He lives in the Tambo Real district of the Anta Province.

Cosme still works in his primary job which is a taxi route traveling between Anta to Cusco, but he also sells milk in bulk. The member has worked in this field for many years, and because of it he and his family have excelled.

Cosme needs to maintain his vehicle. He will invest the money from the loan in repair costs. To repair it he needs to buy spare parts and accessories, such as new wheels. He also needs to purchase milk in bulk to be able to satisfy his clients.

Cosme is very grateful for Kiva's help in maintaining and developing his business.

He promises to complete payments as scheduled.

Cosme belongs to the communal bank "San Bartolome de Tambo Real" of the Tambo Real district in the Anta province, in Cusco, Peru.
