A loan of $775 helped buying and installing tiles for a room.


Ángel Eliud's story

Mr. Ángel Eliud R. has already taken out two loans with Kiva partner FVP. Both loans were used to build his house, and he has paid them timely. Today he is requesting a loan to tile the floor of the room he built with the previous loans because currently he does not have the money to buy the materials and pay the person who will install the tiles.

Ángel is employed as a manager in a used auto-parts business, and his income goes to support his family; a portion of it will now also go to pay back the loan.

The person in the picture is Mrs. Claudia Ivonne Barcenas, Mr. Ángel Eliud's wife; the day we visited his home, he was at work.
