A loan of $225 helped to purchase replacement parts for her vehicle.

Lucinda's story

Lucinda, 28 years old, is married to Libio, who is a merchant and father of their 3 children aged 11, 7, and 3. They live together in their own house.

Lucinda rents out her mototaxi, which she purchased with the help of her partner. This vehicle is leased to a responsible person. She began more than 5 years ago, purchasing the vehicle with the couple's mutual savings. She repairs the vehicle from wear and tear, and also drives it in her free time. She considers her business quite profitable based on the earnings it brings her and the public's demand for this service. As a result, seeing the results of her business, she wants to move forward and increase the number of vehicles.

This is her first loan with Kiva and she is grateful for the financial support that she receives to get ahead. As well, she promises to make her repayments promptly. With the requested 600 nuevos soles, she will purchase replacement parts for her motorcycle, such as tires and other things, to maintain the vehicle, searching for a good price for these purchases.
