A loan of $1,100 helped for repairs and maintenance of his vehicle.

Hernan's story

Hernan is a 27 year old man who lives in the city of Ica. He is a very kind, hard-working, and enthusiastic person. He has a great desire for self-improvement.

Sadly, due to the lack of financial resources and out of necessity, he has had to work ever since he was very young. Hernan could not study for a Civil Engineering career.

In his free time he likes to listen to music. Sometimes he makes a delicious ‘aji de gallina’[chili pepper chicken, a Peruvian chicken stew] to share with his family.

On his own initiative, and with much hard work and dedication, Hernan works as a driver of a three-wheel utility van. He provides transportation services. He works every day for approximately eight hours. He believes that it is going well for him because of the kind way that he treats his customers.

Hernan is very grateful to the Kiva lenders. Thanks to the help provided, he will be able to do repairs and the general maintenance that his vehicle needs. This way his work tool will be in better condition.

Hernan will continue working and putting forth great effort in order to achieve his big dream of having his own transportation company.
