A loan of $375 helped to purchase new tools to improve the quality of his work.

Javier's story

Javier is 36 years old and he lives with his wife and son, temporarily at his parents' house. He has been a construction contractor for more than 6 years, for private homes or for public works. He is hired according to what the client requires. His passion for his work moves him to try to finish in less time to please the client. He has his own work tools which permit him to provide quality service and this is why he is known in his community as a master contractor. Over the last months he has had many contracts and this has increased his earnings. He is able to support his family and to continue working on building their own house. It is one of his greatest goals. The length of his experience and good work references are the best guarantees for his business and he has seen throughout the years ant it is essential to have more sophisticated tools. He plans on settling his plans with the help of the loan. It is his second loan with MFP (Kiva Field Partner) and during all this time he has seen the unity in his group and he feels that he can trust the other members to be on time with their loan. For his part he is committed to keep being responsible with his payments. With the loan that he requests he will invest in the purchase of new tools that he needs to optimize his work.
