A loan of $475 helped to buy building materials to improve a room.


Luis Manuel's story

Luis Manuel is 22 years old and single. He lives with his mom and helps her with the family expenses. They live in Zone #4 in Nueva Guinea. Luis Manuel works as a checkout operator for Pali in Nueva Guinea. He has been in this job for 3 years and makes a monthly wage. Luis Manuel is a hard-working and responsible young man who has a desire to improve himself. He has worked with Kiva previously and he would like to thank them for giving him this opportunity to continue building his home since he used his previous loan to start building a room. He is requesting his second loan to invest in plastering his room and putting in a floor so that he can have better conditions in his home. His biggest dream in life is to continue studying so that he can become an excellent professional, to have stability in his work and to form his own family.
