A loan of $775 helped to repair and maintain her taxi.

Uva Cecilia's story

Uva, 20, lives in the Parcona area of the city of Ica with her parents and siblings. She's a very friendly, hardworking, and enthusiastic young woman who has a great desire for improvement. Thanks to her effort and the support of her parents, Uva's studying for a career in business administration. In her free time she likes to watch television and sometimes she cooks a delicious chicken and rice to share with her family.

On her own initiative and with a lot of effort and dedication, Uva works in her small taxi-rental business. Thanks to her savings from previous jobs, Uva managed to buy herself a car, which she rents to taxi drivers for them to offer transportation service in her city. She believes it's going well for her because of her friendly treatment of her customers.

Uva's very grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to their help she'll be able to replace parts and perform general maintenance that her car needs, so her working tool will be in better condition and she'll be able to continue renting it.

This way Uva will continue working and making the effort to achieve her big dream of becoming a great professional. She wants to get ahead with her family little by little.
