Luis's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped me to purchase equipment to improve the quality of my tattoo services and reach more clients.
I am originally from Guerrero, Mexico. I came to the United States when I was 12 years old. I went to high school in the Bay Area and graduated in 1999. I got married when I was 21 years old. My wife, who was also a Kiva borrower, just gave birth to our newest child and now we have three boys. I work in construction but my true passion is in tattooing. I began tattooing in 2001 and it started as a hobby. Now it is my part time job and I plan to open my own shop one day!
