Justino Adolfo's story

Justino is 45 years old. He's in a common law marriage and has a 9-year-old son. He comes from the town of Chinandega. Chinandega is known as a thriving commercial area; it's a border area, which facilitates the trade in Chinandega. Justino's business is taxi services, which he has been providing for 12 years in the town of Chinandega. He has both casual and regular customers, such as company employees. He acquired his taxi cab many years ago as a result of his own efforts. He had been working abroad, and with the money he brought back he was able to purchase his taxi, which has been his and his family's livelihood. Justino has already worked with Fundación León 2000 before, and he has proven himself to be responsible with his repayments, both in terms of time and form. The challenges and hardships that the family has faced in the business are a few mechanical flaws in the engine of his taxi, which is the reason why he's requesting the loan. His dream for the future is to keep on working hard and eventually buy another taxi cab. Justino gives thanks for the help that Kiva lenders provide for underprivileged people from poor countries such as Nicaragua.
