A loan of $400 helped to perform maintenance on his motorcycle.

Ali's story

Ali lives in the city of Pucallpa, which is characterized by a warm and welcoming climate and beautiful scenery. Ali has five children, whom he loves very much. Some years ago, one of his children died, which was very painful for him. It took a long time for him to recover, but he still has the memory of his son in his heart. In spite of this pain, Ali found the strength to continue on, above all to demonstrate to his children that one can move forward in the face of grief.

Ali works day to day as an employee for a small company in his city. He works for about ten hours per day. He believes that he is successful because he is responsible, and above all because he has an angel in heaven who protects him.

Ali is very grateful for the Kiva lenders, because thanks to their great support he will be able to perform maintenance and repairs on his motorcycle, which he uses to drive to work. It is his only means of transportation, so this will help him to improve his income because he will not spend very much on transport. He will continue working to make his greatest dream come true: to have a spare auto parts store.
