Mario Alberto

”Thanks to God and to a lot of years of hard work I have my own house. I’m in the need to build an additional bedroom because my children are growing, and this type of social housing is quite small”. I’m requesting a loan of $1000 for the construction of a bedroom for my house.

Translated from Spanish by Ana Gabriela Clark, Kiva Volunteer.

“Tengo mi casa gracias a dios y a muchos años de trabajo, pero debido a que mis hijos están creciendo me veo en la necesidad de construir un cuarto más; ya que las casas de interés social son muy reducidas” Solicito $ 1,000.00 dlls para la construcción de un cuarto en mi vivienda
