A loan of $550 helped to purchase three tires for his motorcycle taxi and pay for vehicle maintenance.

Juan's story

Juan is 42 years old and married to Esther. They have two children and live in their own home. Juan provides transportation services to his passengers. For this reason, he has a motorcycle taxi that he originally purchased for transporting fruit to his neighbors. Due to the demand from passengers, he decided to switch his business to transporting people. He makes his own route through the streets of the city, stopping in various parts of the community. Juan has been in this business for approximately four years.

He enjoys his business because it allows him to become familiar with different parts of the city. In addition, the income he generates is used to cover his family’s expenses. Juan would like to buy another vehicle that he can offer for rent. This is his first Kiva loan and he appreciates the financial support that has received so that he can press forward. In addition, he promises to submit his payments in a punctual manner.

With the amount of 1,500 PEN that he requested, Juan will invest in the purchase of three tires for his motorcycle taxi and also pay for vehicle maintenance.
