Carlos Jose's story

Carlos is 61 years old, married and has two children. He works as a physical education and swimming teacher. He has been teaching physical education and swimming for forty years. Carlos used to work as a construction worker before he gained his teaching post.

Through his savings, Carlos has managed to improve his home together with his wife, who is also a teacher. However, he needs to repair part of his roof, to sort out waste water and rainwater. He does not have a lot of cash and so is taking a loan in order to do the job. His loan from Kiva will make his objective possible.
