A loan of $1,050 helped to buy a welding machine.


Santos's story

Santos is married and has four children. He is a long-standing client of our institution. He has loans only with Emprender. He is a locksmith but makes all kinds of metal objects: gutters, sheds, gates and window grills. Together with his wife and four children he has improved his business. They are a devout, very close to God, family; they belong to an Evangelical church. They rent their house but are negotiating the purchase of their home; they say that with hard work and God’s help they will accomplish this. For the time being, however, Santos needs funds to buy a welding machine that he needs as well as some assets for his home. He is very grateful to Emprender and to Kiva for the trust placed in him by granting the loan.
