A loan of $1,000 helped to buy scaffolding for painting buildings.


Marcial's story

Marcial lives in his parents' home in Pacata Baja. He is a painter. He started in this business at a very young age as an assistant. He is now an expert painter and contractor who provides interior and exterior decorating services. This is his main source of income.

Marcial needs this loan to increase his capital so that he can do his work and buy new scaffolding. Marcial is very satisfied with the institution and with his Kiva loan. He is a very hard-working and responsible man and in the future he would like to get married and start a family. However, right now he is working to save so that he can start to hire staff to paint houses.
