Edgar's story

Edgar is separated from his wife and lives alone in Santa Rosa district, in the city of La Paz. He has three children and makes his income with a car that he owns and uses to provide a public transport service. Through this business, he makes income and supports himself. Edgar is requesting this loan to buy an engine so that he can keep his vehicle running as it is the only work tool he has for making income. Edgar's dream is to buy his own house. This is the fourth time he has requested a loan through Kiva.
