A loan of $1,150 helped to repair and maintain his motortaxi.

Eddy Alfonso's story

Eddy, 28, is single and lives in the city of Ica with his parents and siblings who he adores and who are his main motivation in life. He is a very kind, hard-working, enthusiastic person who has a great desire to get ahead. Unfortunately, due to a lack of economic resources and the need to work from a very young age, he was unable to get professional training as he would have liked. In his free time he enjoys playing soccer and sometimes he cooks a delicious "Carapulcra con Sopa Seca" stew to share with his family.

On his own initiative and with much hard work and dedication, Eddy works as a motortaxi driver providing transportation services. He works every day for about ten hours. He enjoys his work and believes it is going well because of his dedication and kindness to customers.

Eddy is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to your help he will be able to repair his vehicle and give it the proper maintenance to keep it in running order. This will allow him to continue working and striving toward his goal of having his own transportation business and own home one day.
