Marlon Alfredo's story

Marlon lives in the city of Guadalupe. He lives side by side with his wife and their little 3-year-old son, whom he loves very much; he would give his life to see him happy. Marlon is very enthusiastic, and above all he has a great desire to get ahead, since he wants his family to have a better quality of life and above all to be happy. Marlon works day by day as a moto-taxi driver. He works about 10 hours a day and can serve up to 40 customers in a day. He believes that things are going well for him in his work because he is friendly with the customers and above all because he is honest.

Marlon is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to the help they have provided to him, he will be able to carry out general maintenance to his vehicle. It is his only working tool, which he uses to cover his household expenses. In this way he will have a safer vehicle and will be able to improve his income. Thus he will keep working hard so that he can make his greatest dream a reality: "Having his own house and giving his son a good education."
