A loan of $1,000 helped to buy firewood in order to continue selling.


Luis Mauricio's story

Luis studied through the 4th grade of primary school. He is married and his wife sells pupusas and soft drinks. Only one of his children lives with him.

Luis has had a business selling firewood for more than 20 years and he learned it because of the need to generate income.

He needs a loan in order to buy firewood to continue selling.

He plans to have more income and to live a quieter life.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Karen Monat


This loan is special because:

It helps people older than 60 who still have the capacity to work but no financing.
