Enrique Yankele's story

Enrique, 19, is a young man living in the city of Nazca which has many tourist attractions like the “Nazca Lines, for example. Enrique is a young man who very much wants to get ahead, above all because he’s the father of a little two-year-old boy he loves very much. He and his wife strive daily to provide a proper life. Because of his limited economic resources, he only completed fourth year of secondary school but would have liked to finish secondary school.

Starting very early Enrique starts out to work as a taxi driver. He works around 8 hours daily and with his father also has a small car wash business. He believes he’s getting ahead in his business because he tends to his customers kindly and very respectfully.

Enrique is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to their great support he will be able to buy supplies like pressure hoses, vehicle fluids, wax, among others for his car wash business in order to have the necessary materials on-hand to do his work and continue striving to reach his greatest dream: to give his son a good education and own a taxi company.
