A loan of $450 helped to purchase construction materials to make divisions in the bedrooms for privacy.

Marvin Jose's story

Marvin is a musician by profession, a skill he learned when he was very young. And this has been the vehicle by which he support his family. He is the father of two children and he is married.

With earnings from his work he managed to install a convenience store to help him cover the expenses. And with loans from Afodenic (Kiva Field Partner) over the past three cycles he has invested in inventory for his store. There have been some changes. His wife provides private custodial services, he works as the musician in a restaurant, and their youngest daughter carries out the sales.

His objective has been to cover his expenses especially because everything is so high in price and the sales have been slow.

This new loan will be used to make divisions to the bedrooms to have privacy in his family. There will still be some renovations to be made but he hopes to achieve those in future loan cycles. He will purchase construction materials to start the project.
