A loan of $1,075 helped to purchase spare parts in order to maintain her vehicle.

Lita's story

51-year-old Lita is married and she has five grown up children, but she currently only lives with two of them in her own house. Lita makes a living by hiring out her Moto taxi, but she also makes a living by selling shoes and articles of clothing. She has been hiring out her vehicle for about eight years and during this time she has learnt many things which she uses to improve every day. She works by herself and she feels very comfortable doing so since it allows her to have time with her children and she doesn’t have to neglect the household chores. It is going very well since she has very good earnings. This is her first loan with Kiva and she feels grateful for the financial support she is receiving in order to get ahead. She also promises to make her repayments on time. With the requested amount of 3000 PEN she will maintain her vehicle and buy spare parts.
