A loan of $375 helped to order spare parts to repair his motorcycle.

Humberto's story

Humberto, 45, is married living with his family in a house of his own. Humberto works providing passenger transportation both within and without the city. When he started in this business he drove a leased mototaxi but he’s now been able to buy a vehicle and work for himself. He’s been working independently now for more than six years and he’s doing very well. He likes his work very much because it generates daily family income; besides his wife’s a big supporter of him.

He’s now thinking about expanding his business and adding merchandise. This will be his third Kiva loan and he’s very happy to know that he’ll have financial support because he’ll feel sure of making business progress. On the other hand, he commits once more to make his installment payments. He will use the 1000 new soles to repair or replace some of his mototaxi’s parts.
