A loan of $425 helped to buy oil and tools.


Juan Carlos's story

Mr. Juan is a hard-working man who works with tires. Two years ago he began working in a small space since rent was very expensive. He is married and his wife and son help him with the hard work. Finding themselves in need of some tools and oils, they asked for a loan from Emprender. Mr. Juan and his family moved from an interior province and they experienced a lot of difficult times in the city. Many times they did not have food to eat. Now they are living with more stability and they hope to stay for a long time if everything continues well, and to be able to expand their small tire shop. Juan is a very responsible person, and is very thankful for Emprender and Kiva for trusting him with the loan.
