A loan of $600 helped to repair his motorcycle taxi.

Nelson Cesar's story

Nelson is a 23 year old man. He lives in the city of Ica in the district of Parcona with his spouse. He is a kind hardworking and enthusiastic person who really wants to get ahead. Lamentably, due to a lack of resources and out of a need to work to pay expenses, Nelson was unable to study Mechanical Engineering, but he really would have liked to. In his free itme, he likes to play soccer with his friends and sometimes cook a delcious ceviche to share with his family.

On his own intiative, with a lot of hardwork and dedication, Nelson works offering transportation services. He has a motorcycle taxi that he uses to work. Every day starting very early in the morning he starts his work driving around different streets in his city seeking passengers. Nelson can work approximately 10 hours a day and he thinks it is going well for him because of his dedication and because of his friendly treatment of his customers.

Nelson is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to their help he can repair his motorcycle taxi. He wants to paint, put in a stereo, buy new tores and do general maintenance on his vehicle. This way, Nelson will keep his motorcycle taxi in better condition. He will keep working and striving to make his dream of owning his own home come true, where he can live with his own family.
