A loan of $800 helped to buy new tools for work.


Rafael's story

Rafael is married and has daughters who are already in the university. His is an old client of Emprender, who works in the area of construction. He lives in the San Antonio neighborhood, and he works very hard to support his family and provide for all of their needs. He leaves very early each day to begin his day of work. He is a master contractor, and is sought after to build houses because he does a good job; for this reason his always has work. He is a responsible person who has been a good example for his daughters, who are now at the university. Rafael will use the money requested to invest in new tools for his work, since the tools he has now are worn and are not very useful. For this reason he wants to renew his stock of tools and this is the reason he is requesting this new loan. He is very grateful to Emprender and Kiva for the trust provided in granting this loan.
