A loan helped to buy gardening tools.


Luis Rafael's story

Luis Rafael is seeking another loan. He is 35, married and lives with his wife and children, who are his biggest priority. He will use this loan to buy necessary tools for his landscaping business to offer clients a better job and the best quality.

He hopes this investment will raise his family's quality of life and offer more economic stability; he also hopes to continue growing as a person and as a small business owner. This is the eighth loan he has received from Kiva field partner Fundecosur. He hasn't had other loans in state banks before, but Fundecosur has helped him get a loan more easily and at a much lower interest rate.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Heather Way.


This loan is special because:

It reaches rural borrowers that are considered too risky for traditional banks.
