A loan of $250 helped to maintain his motorcycle taxi.


Jimmy Alexander's story

Jimmy is 35 years old and lives in the city of Piura. Jimmy works as a motorcycle taxi driver in order to be able to pay his costs of living. He works about 10 hours a day and covers all the streets of the city in search of customers. Jimmy feels things are going well for him in his job because he is very friendly with customers and most of all because he is a responsible driver. Jimmy is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because with the aid that they have given him he will be able to perform improvements to his vehicle, especially its maintenance. Because of this he will be able to drive a vehicle in good condition and continue working to achieve his greatest dream: "to have a fleet of taxis".
