Francisco's story

Francisco, 28, is a hardworking, enterprising man in addition to being kind and cordial. He lives with Lorena who is a housewife and the mother of their children. They live together in his parents’ house in the company of his father, sister, two nephews and his grandmother.

The activity Francisco does is transportation. To do so, he bought a car with his own capital; he’s been in business three years. He likes it because it provides him with income and employment since he hadn’t been able to find a job. Besides, he can manage his own time and feel independent. He considers his business to be quite profitable because transportation in the city is in demand and it produces good profits. Because of this, he plans to expand the business and to grow. He wants to buy another car to generate more income.

This will be his second Kiva loan so he’s hoping for your collaboration to continue towards his objectives. He will use the requested 3,000 new soles to buy spare parts for his car as well as to pay for a mechanic’s services.
