A loan of $600 helped to buy spare parts.

Edson's story

Edson is 47 years old and married to Miguelina. They have a 17 year old daughter and live comfortably in a home of their own. Edson drives a moto-taxi, which is the fruit of his effort and dedication, being a tool of his trade. He started in this field more than 15 years ago because he needed a way to make money since he was unable to find steady employment. Now he feels more secure because he can manage his own time and be his own boss. But he doesn’t like it when his moto-taxi breaks down because it costs him a lot of money, but he still manages to have good successes. His long range goal is to buy a truck for hauling heavy freight. This will be his third Kiva loan and he is grateful for the financial support he has that helps him reach his objectives.

He is asking for a loan of 1,500 PEN to be able to buy spare parts, such as tires and accessories for his moto-taxi, so that he can keep his vehicle running.
