Francisco Ramon's story
Francisco is married to Amanda Gutierrez and has 7 children, the 4 eldest of which are already married and have their own families. Only Francisco Jose, aged 17, Hector, aged 16, and Ramon, aged 11, live with him. Francisco has been employed by the MNED at the Instituto Nacional de Chontales as a secondary school teacher for 25 years. He would like to request a loan to improve his home by building a porch, which will give the house a nicer appearance. Thanks to the loans obtained so far he has been able to make his house better, and this time he hopes to benefit from a Kiva loan. His dreams are to get his home to the basic standard required by his family and to see his sons finish their studies and become hard-working men.
