Francisco Wilberto's story

Francisco Wilberto L. H. is married, and lives with his wife in the Medardo Andino neighborhood. His wife works as a janitor, helping out with the household expenses. They have 3 adolescent children who are in secondary school. Don Francisco works as a security guard. They are a family of limited means that aspires to open a grocery store and improve the infrastructure of their home.

With the support of Kiva, Señor L. hopes to improve the conditions in which the family currently lives. For this reason he requests this loan to repair their dwelling. The walls and roof are deteriorated such that they threaten the security of the members of the family. With the loan he hopes to buy construction materials and also add another room, in order to improve the comfort and conditions of the home that they live in. They need this support quickly, since the season of rain and strong winds is approaching, which would further weaken the stability of the infrastructure of their home.
