Kelvin's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Kelvin's story

24 year old Kelvin is single, a mechanic and welder by profession, and has been providing mechanic and welding services for 4 years. An enterprising young man, he studied auto mechanics and welding after completing high school. With his mother's support, he completed his studies. He is requesting a loan from FUNDENUSE to invest in the purchase of a toilet including accessories, and construction materials and labor to install a septic tank. The loan will have a positive impact on this young man's hygiene seeing as he is not currently able to meet his physiological needs. In future he hopes to open his own car repair shop.
