Jesus operates a repair shop. He offers repair, check-up and reconditioning of electric fans, televisions, radios and other appliances.

To help him continue operations of his business, he is requesting a PHP 50,000 loan. He will be using the loan to buy supplies like wiring, putty paint and others of the like. He expects a boost in his business income as he expands his business.

Jesus dreams to expand his business through all his hard work. He faithfully meets up with his co-fellowship members to share stories of his work every week.

More information about this loan

On Friday November 8, 2013, Super Typhoon Haiyan made its way through Southeast Asia, causing substantial damage to homes and businesses in areas of the Philippines. Given the state of devastation following this storm, borrowers living and working in these areas may have difficulty making repayments on their loans, thus making their Kiva loans higher risk. More information >>
