A loan of $1,000 helps to buy metal sheets.


Howard Stephan's story

This young man is named Howard. He is 26 years old and makes a living repairing all types of footwear from his small stall that he set up with his fathers help. He has ten years of experience in this lucrative trade. The quality of his work brings many customers to his shop. He is a responsible, honest, hardworking young man who above all wants to continue to improve his mothers quality of life.
This business owner already has experience with Kiva loans provided through MiCrédito. His prior loan allowed him to improve the structure of his stall with roof joists, corrugated metal roofing and new fixing bolts. Delighted because he fixed up his business, Howard has come back to these two organisations for a loan to buy metal sheets and enclose his stall before the rainy season. In the immediate future he is thinking of buying a sewing machine for footwear.
