A loan of $1,200 helped make improvements on his property.


Lidio Luis's story

Lidio is 56 years old and his wife is 49, and their children, who are still in school, live with them in a home they have owned for a long time. Lidio has made various improvements to the home to set up a business selling food out of the place, and his wife has experience in the food industry. The business does not have much competition, so the demand is quite high, and it also has a good location because there are no others in the area. Lidio also has worked at a local refinery since a long time back. He plans to use the loan he is requesting to make improvements to his property. This is his sixth loan from the microfinance institution and he has a good credit history with Kiva partner AgroCapital. He also takes out loans from another institution that he consistently pays off.
