A loan of $350 helped to buy a machine to wash vehicles.

Emiro Rafael's story

Emiro, 33, works washing motorcycles, a business that allows him to support his home composed of his spouse and four children ranging in age from 2 to 11. Motorcycle drivers bring their cycles to Emiro so that in addition to washing them he’ll wax them. Lately, Emiro’s clientele has grown much and he can’t cover demand fast enough. This is the reason he’s applying for a Kiva loan so that he can buy a machine to wash them with and work more efficiently. Emiro is very satisfied with his business because it meets the purpose for which he created it which was to generate income so that his family would be better off every day. His main customers are transportation providers who he tends to all day, every day but with much dedication and attention to detail.
