A loan of $550 helped to do general vehicle maintenance.


Jorge Luis's story

Jorge is a 35-year-old young man. He lives in the city of Imperial, and to earn an income in order to get ahead he works as a mototaxi driver. He dedicates himself to his work for about nine hours a day, and he can attend to up to fifteen customers each day. Jorge thinks that he is getting ahead because he is responsible. Jorge is grateful to the Kiva lenders, as thanks to the help they have provided him he will be able to do general maintenance on his vehicle. He will thus be able to drive a vehicle in good condition and avoid accidents. In this way he will be able to improve his earnings and keep striving to make his great dream a reality: "To study for a career as a mechanic."
