A loan of $825 helped to repair his car.

Lestter Mauricio's story

Lestter, who is 47 and the father of two children, comes from a town in the west of Chinandega department. He owns a fleet of "taxis", a business he set up because he previously worked driving a taxi which was not his own. Since he is a person who is keen to succeed, he began to invest and bought a number of his own "taxis" and, with a great deal of effort and in spite of the heat and sun of the department, he has got by. Lestter is applying for this loan to have some mechanical checks carried out on his vehicles, so as to ensure the safety of his passengers, and will also buy spare parts for his taxis. He is very grateful to Kiva investors who help poor countries such as Nicaragua; it is thanks to them that he was able to set up his own business.
