A loan of $550 helped to maintain and repair his taxi.

Edwin Roberto's story

Edwin is a 36 year old man. He lives in the city of Nazca with his wife and two children. He is very hardworking and devotes all his efforts to helping his family get ahead. Unfortunately, due to a lack of resources and to the need to work, Edwin was unable to study for a professional career.

On his own initiative, Edwin works as a taxi cab driver, providing transportation services. He works every day for approximately 10 hrs. and believes that he is doing well because he knows the zones where he can find the largest number of passengers.

Edwin is very grateful to Kiva lenders because, thanks to their help, he will cover the costs of maintaining and repairing his taxi. In this way he will have his work tool in the best condition. Thus he will continue working and striving to fulfill his great dream of having his own transportation business.
