A loan of $1,100 helped to maintain and repair his motorbike.


Gabriel's story

Gabriel lives in the warm city of Pucallpa, and is studying for a degree in IT and computing. To help pay for his study costs, he works in a small automobile workshop in his city as a salesperson. Gabriel works around nine hours a day, and the rest of the time he goes to his study centre. Gabriel thinks that his work is going well because he is responsible and trustworthy. Gabriel is very grateful to Kiva lenders, as thanks to their help, he will be able to repair the motorbike he uses to get to work. This is his only means of a getting about without spending a lot of money. In this way, he will be able to drive a vehicle in good condition and keep working to achieve his biggest dream of finishing his degree and becoming a successful professional.
