A loan of $775 helped to strengthen the cargo bed of his truck.


Luis Sandro's story

Luis, 29, is single and lives in the city of Ica. He is a very friendly, hard-working and enthusiastic person who has a great desire to excel. Regrettably, due to a lack of economic resources and the necessity to work to support himself, Luis was unable to study the professional career in Mechanics that he wanted to, but he would have greatly liked to be able to do it. In his free time, he likes to continue working and on some occasions he eats a delicious grilled chicken, which is his favorite dish.

With much effort and enthusiasm, Luis works providing services in heavy freight transportation. He has a small truck which he uses for his work. Every day his work begins in the early hours. He can work approximately 10 hours daily, and he believes that it is going well for him because he has his truck in good condition.

Luis is very grateful for the Kiva lenders, since thanks to the help they provide he will be able to reinforce his truck's cargo bed. This way, Luis will have his truck in better condition in order to be able to transport larger quantities of materials and a greater variety of loads. That way he hopes to enhance his services and increase his economic income, which will serve him greatly so that in the not-too-far future he can have his own business and that way have his own house.
