Thomas Elliot's story

Thomas lives with his mother and younger sister. His parents are separated. His mother sells beauty products from door to door in order to support Thomas and his sister. Thomas is applying to KIVA for a new loan so that he can complete a degree in graphics design. He needs the loan because his family can't afford to pay his college fees and he is desperate to carry on. He is passionate about graphics design and wants to finish his degree so that he can start working. His income will, he says, help his mother pay for his sister's schooling. Thomas is grateful that KIVA and Programa de Créditos Educativos have partnered to support people like him who want to build better lives for themselves.
