A loan of $225 helped to buy spare parts and wheels for her mototaxi.


Cely's story

Cely, 32 years old, is married with Jairo, who works as a security guard and is father of 3 children. Together they live in their own home. Cely rents her motorcycle taxi (mototaxi) to be a driver of the city. She got this vehicle with the support of her husband more than three years ago. She considers her business to be very profitable since it makes for good earnings. She decided to start with this business because she wanted to make her own income and support her husband with home expenses. In the future she wants to have more vehicles so that she can rent them to people. This will be the loan number 4 with Kiva, and she is grateful and happy to know that she can continue counting on the financial support she needs to advance forward with her business. Additionaly, she comments that what she likes about her communal bank is that she knows the members and considers them to be responsible people. With the requested amount of 600 nuevos soles, she will buy spare parts and tires for vehicle maintenance.
