A loan of $200 helped buy a mattress.


Yunior Rafael's story

Yunior is a 21-year-old single man who lives in the city of Ica with his parents and siblings. He is very hardworking and enthusiastic. He puts all his efforts into progressing and moving forward in life. Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial means and having to work, Yunior wasn't able to study so as to obtain a professional career. Through his own efforts, Yunior works as a taxi driver offering transportation services in his city. He works every day for about 10 hours a day. He believes that it is going well for him due to his dedication and effort that he puts into it. Yunior is thankful for Kiva loans because thanks to this help he will be able to buy a mattress for his home. Currently, his siblings all share the same bed because they don't have another mattress. He will continue to work so as to realize his great dream of having his own transportation business.
