Juan's story

Juan is 36 years old. He is a humble and responsible man who lives in his mother's house. Since the death of his father, he lives together with his wife, his son, and his mother. Juan has worked as a mototaxi driver for 10 years. For much of that time, he worked as a driver for others, until one of his neighbors suggested that he work with his mototaxi, and that was how he started this type of work. Later, he purchased his own vehicle and now he works independently. He hopes to provide his family with a better quality of life and with his savings, he hopes to purchase another mototaxi.

This is his first loan with Kiva and he is very grateful for the financial support. He promises to make his repayments on time. With the 700 soles he is requesting, he hopes to repair his mototaxi, which has a few faults that prevent him from going out to work.
