Marin's story

Marin is a 38-year-old man from Macaresti village, Ungheni region of Moldova. He is married and has a daughter and a son who are students. He has been working as an excavatorist for a company in the town for some time. His wife often goes abroad to earn additional income. Marin lives in his own house with his family. He invested in the repair of the house when it was necessary. At the moment the need for a new investment has appeared, but he has did managed to collect the whole necessary amount.

Now Marin needs a Kiva loan to build a warehouse. Due to this he will be able to build what he wants. He hopes he will complete the repairs and construction and his wife will no longer have to go abroad for additional income.
