A loan of $725 helped to maintain his car and to buy a mattress.


Prudencio Santos's story

Prudencio is a very hardworking man. He is 57 years of age and lives in Parcona with his wife and his two marvelous children, for whom he strives each day in order to provide them with a better future.

For more than 5 years, he has been working offering transportation to different areas of the city with a combi (passenger car), that he bought with great effort and dedication. It is going very well for him, because he is a very responsible and friendly person, and above all, because he drives very carefully and always respects traffic laws.

Prudencio is grateful to the Kiva lenders, because with the support they have provided him, he will be able to carry out some maintenance on his means of transport, so that he doesn't run into problems when he is transporting passengers, and he can earn more income.

He also wants to buy a new mattress so that his wife can be more comfortable, and they can rest better. In this way, with great effort and determination, he will continue to work in order to fulfill his greatest dream: "To buy a new Coaster [minibus]."
