Oscar William's story

Oscar is a 42 year old man. He lives in the city of Nazca with his wife and two children. whom he loves and who are his main reason for living. He is a friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic person. He and his wife dedicate all of their effort into getting their family ahead. Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources, and out of a need to work since he was very young, Oscar was unable to go to college, but he really would have liked to. In his free time, he likes to listen to music and sometimes he cooks a delicious lomo saltado to share with his family.

On his own initiative, with much hard work and dedication, Oscar works as a taxi driver, offering transportation services in his city. He works every day for approximately 10 hours and he thinks it is going well for him because he knows the areas where the most passengers are.

Oscar is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to their help he will be able to cover the school expenses of his young children, such as registration fees and school supplies. This way, Oscar will be able to give his children the materials they need to do their studies. He will continue to work and strive to achieve his dream of having his own transportation business.
