A loan of $8,275 helped to produce and sell Interactive Educational Software.


Armando's story

Armando originally came from Peru. He is a truck driver, but has also developed interactive educational software in Spanish, which provides theoretical, mechanical, and practical education, allowing users to pass the test for class A and B commercial driver’s licenses (CDL). This license allows the bearer to operate heavy trucks, passenger buses, school buses, and tractor trailers. In addition to his regular job as a truck driver, Armando has been teaching, preparing and helping students to get this license. Armando’s product will make it easier to obtain a license and a job for Hispanics who do not have the financial resources needed to invest in a conventional class. After obtaining his own license, facing the high cost of tuition and language barriers, Armando decided to develop an alternative, inexpensive method of preparation for the CDL exam. The Kiva loan will be used to help Armando to finish, produce, and sell the product. Armando is married with grown children, and his wife is helping him in this new venture.
