Luis's story

Luis, who is 55 years old, is married to Ami, who is the mother of his children. They live together in his parents' house together with his father, sister, two nephews and grandmother. Luis works transporting passengers. He uses a motorcycle taxi for this, which he bought 5 years ago with his own capital. He drives through the streets of the city looking for customers and taking them safely to their destination. He likes his occupation because it provides him with the income needed to get ahead. He considers his business to be quite profitable because of the demand for transportation in the city and the good profit that it provides to him. This is his first loan with Kiva, therefore he is hoping for your contribution in order to continue with his goals. In addition, he promises to make his payments punctually. With the amount of 2000 nuevos soles that he is seeking, he will buy spare parts for the maintenance of his motorcycle taxi, as well as pay for the services of a mechanic.
