Luis Gerardo's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped start his own auto mechanic shop, and provide a better quality of life to his parents who have given him so much support.

Luis Gerardo's story

In the warm and humid Andoas section of the Pedro Vicente Maldonado canton, a tight-knit community, lives Luis. He is a single, hard-working man who lives in his parents' house. He is very independent, but helps his parents however he can, as they are a very close family. His family has very little economic means, and ever since Luis was a child he has looked for a way to get ahead.

Luis makes a living working in an auto mechanic shop. He is very knowledgeable of this subject since he took several courses and learned the appropriate technology. He wants to start his own business, as he has the tools he needs to start working independently. He will build the shop on his brother's land. He hopes to be able to bring many of the clients he works with now over to his own shop.

With his own business, Luis will improve his income and be able to keep helping his parents. He is grateful to Kiva for this opportunity.
