A loan of $375 helped to purchase spare parts to maintain her three-wheelers.

Alina's story

Alina is forty years old. She is divorced and lives in her own home with her three children. Alina provides passenger transportation services, which is why she has two three-wheelers, which she rents. She has been in this business almost two years. She enjoys her work because it generates financial income but also allows her free time to dedicate to other activities. On the other hand, she considers it profitable and has quite a bit of demand. With her profits she plans to open a store selling lubricants for motorcycles and three-wheelers.

This will be her second loan through Kiva. She is very happy knowing that she will have financial support, because that will give her confidence in advancing her business. She promises to make her payments on time.

She will invest the amount of 1,000 nuevos soles in purchasing spare parts like tires and other items to maintain her three-wheelers.
