Leoncio Daniel's story

Leoncio is a 33 year old man, who is single and lives in the city of Ica. He is a very kind, hard-working, and enthusiastic person, who puts all his efforts into getting ahead. Unfortunately, because of a lack of economic resources and the necessity of having to work since he was very young, Leoncio couldn't study a professional career, although he would have liked to. In his free time, he enjoys playing soccer with his friends and on some occasions, he makes the delicious ceviche to share with his family.

By his own initiative and with a lot of hard work and dedication, Leoncio works as a taxi driver, offering transportation services in his city. He works everyday for approximately 12 hours and believes it to be going well because he knows the areas where he can find the greatest quantity of passengers. Leoncio is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to the help offered, he will be able to provide replacement parts and general maintenance of his taxi. In this way, Leoncio will have his work "tool" in better condition, and thus, he will continue working and striving to achieve his great dream of having his own home.
