Oscar Ubaldo
Mr. Oscar lives in a rental home with three children of which only two depend on him financially. He works selling books, which he has done for a long time, and everyday works very hard to make sure that his children have everything they need. Mr. Oscar goes school to school with his books and he does very well selling the books, he sells some of them on credit but he prefers to get the money upfront. He needs the loan to buy more books since he has orders from some schools. This is how Mr. Oscar works and is grateful to Emprender (Kiva’s field partner) and Kiva for giving him a hand since this will be his first loan.
