A loan of $400 helped to make improvements to his home.

Eddy Amador's story

Eddy is a 32-year-old man who lives in the city of Nazca with his wife and their small child, who he loves and who is his main cause in life. He is a very friendly, hard-working and enthusiastic person who, along with his wife, dedicates all his effort to getting his family ahead.

Unfortunately, due to a lack of economic resources and the need he had to work when he was very young, Eddy was unable to study for a professional degree. In his free time he likes to distract himself by watching television and, on some occasions, cook a delicious Ají de Gallina (a Peruvian chicken and rice dish) to share with his family.

On his own initiative and with much determination and dedication, Eddy works as a taxi driver offering transportation services in his city. He works every day for approximately 12 hours and believes it is going well for him due to his friendliness and because he knows all the areas where he can find the largest number of passengers.

Eddy is very thankful to the Kiva lenders since, thanks to the help they offer, he will be able to make improvements to his home. He wishes to put down a concrete floor in his house, which was prefabricated and is made of wood. This way, Eddy will be able to offer his family more security and well-being. Thus he will continue working and striving to achieve his great dream of having his own transportation business.
