Silverio's story

Silverio R. is 36 years old. He has three children who are studying in a school back in his home town so they can have a better future. Silverio lives in the la Macia zone of the city of Cochabamba. He works for a company maintaining pipes. His wife takes care of milk cows from their home. Because of the work he does Silverio can only be at home with his family once a month. He makes this sacrifice to help his family get ahead.

Silverio is a hard worker, and he has managed to acquire a vehicle, which he would like to work on so that he can earn more income. He is seeking a loan to convert his vehicle to natural gas and then offer a transport service. Silverio thanks you for giving him the opportunity, through Kiva, to realize one of his dreams.

One of Silverio's plans for the future is to seek a new loan to buy a plot of land to farm, which would allow him to work closer to his family.
