A loan of $1,150 helped to buy an engine for his vehicle.


Reynaldo's story

Reynaldo, 44, is married, has 2 children, and lives in Urubamba province. He is a miner in the Puerto Maldonado area and must commute there often to work. Reynaldo is requesting a loan to buy an engine for his vehicle, which is key to getting to work. However, he hasn't had the money to purchase it. Reynaldo thanks KIVA for helping him financially and letting him provide for his children's education and offer them a brighter future. His dream is to own several vehicles and provide transit service from Cusco to Puerto Maldonado. Reynaldo belongs to the communal bank “San Jose de Urubamba” in Urubamba province in Cusco, Perú.
