A loan of $350 helped build a porch for his family's house.


Kairo Jose's story

47 year old Kairo Jose is married and has three kids. The eldest child is 10, the middle child is 4, and there is a small baby only a few months old. For the past eight years he has worked for the Ministry of Health as a radiology technician. His wife looks after the house and children and also sells Zermat and Avon products to earn extra income to help with the family expenses. Kairo is requesting his third loan and hopes that the KIVA fund will enable him to improve his house by building a small porch so that his kids will have a place where they can play. He dreams of giving his kids, little by little, the necessary things in their house for them to grow up in a pleasant home environment. He also wants them to study and to become good people who will move their country forward.
