A loan of $650 helped to buy used appliances to repair and resell.


Pablo David's story

Pablo, 58, lives in the city of Chiclayo with his wife and the youngest of his children who is 20 years old and studying a technical career.

Since 1997 Pablo has had a small workshop in his home where he repairs home appliances. Although is shop is located far from the area where other similar businesses are congregated, he finds ways to continue to provide service to his regular customers. In addition, he acquires used appliances to repair and resell. These activities make it possible for him to support his family so he always strives to provide good service.

He has collaborated with Kiva previously and is very grateful to the people who helped him out on that occasion. He was able to buy some replacement parts that helped him provide better service. Currently, he is asking for an 1800 new sol loan to buy used appliances with which to expand his repair and sales business.

Pablo has very good work and personal references from his customers and neighbors. What he wants most is to be able to afford do pay his son’s expenses until he finishes his schooling.
