A loan of $375 helped purchase cylinders of fuel.


Justo's story

Justo is 55 years old and is married to Domitila. They have two children who live in their rented home. Justo was working making handicrafts but thanks to his savings, he could open his own business where he sells motor fuel. He offers this service to different vehicles that arrive in his city. It's going very well because there is no other business like this in his area, and different drivers visit him constantly. Above all, it is a tourist zone which is why he always has good income and always needs to restock his business with fuel.

This is his fifth loan with Kiva, where he feels happy about the work he's done in this time. "Now I've learned to save and project myself," he says. He promises to be punctual with the payments of his dues. Justo will invest 1,000 soles in the purchase of several cylinders of fuel to continue his business.
