Jose Florencio's story
Jose is a mature 59 year old, he is kind and respectful and lives with his wife in the city of San Gabriel. He earns a living as a construction worker. His work has been affected by the pandemic because many projects were stopped due to lack of funds. At his age getting a job is almost impossible and with that in mind, Jose is planning to make finishing touches to the rooms in his house so that he can rent them and support himself and his wife. Jose is requesting a loan to KIVA to buy construction materials like sand, gravel and concrete to improve and finish one of the rooms in his house so he can rent it.
