León's story

León, 49 years old, lives in the locality of Bosa in the municipality of Bogotá. He is a hard-working man who has worked in construction his whole life, a trade he learned on the job at age 19, and since then has done it as an independent worker. His family is made up of his spouse, a grocery merchant, who joined forces with León to get their two children ahead. Thanks to this, these two young people managed to get technical degrees and assure a promising future. León does masonry work, finishing walls, floors, plating, floors, installing bathroom fixtures, and other services.

Currently, he needs economic support to purchase construction materials with which he will build an apartment on his property, which he plans to rent out to improve the family income. For this, he asks for his first Kiva financing through Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to purchase cement, concrete blocks, paint, stucco, rods, gravel, and more. Support him in his loan.
