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


Pedro Roberto's story

Pedro is 48 years old. He lives in the town of Nazca with his wife and their two children, whom he loves very dearly, and who are his main reason for living. He is very nice, hard-working, and enthusiastic. Together with his wife, they do everything in their power to make ends meet. Unfortunately, due to his economic situation and the need to start working at a very young age, Pedro was unable to learn a profession, which is what he would have liked to do. In his spare time, he likes to listen to music, and sometimes cooks a delicious lamb dish called 'seco de cordero', which he shares with his family. On his own initiative, sparing no efforts, and with admirable dedication, Pedro works as a taxi driver in his town. He works every day for about twelve hours and attributes his success to his knowledge of where to find fares. Alfredo is very grateful to Kiva lenders, since, thanks to their help, he will be able to perform maintenance on his taxi, such as changing the tires and the shock absorbers. This will help him keep working towards his great dream of having his own taxi company.
