A loan of $775 helped to construct a room in his home.

Jose Del Carmen's story

Jose T. is the head of his family and the father of four gorgeous children who are still school-age; they attend one of the high schools in Managua, our capital city.

For now, Jose continues to drive his own taxi, which he has been doing for approximately the last eleven years. This is his main way of providing the best for his children and for his wife. The Señor works irregular shifts, in spite of the difficulties that occur in his line of business such as the increase in cost of gasoline, and the daily increase in other people having their own taxis, among other things.

His income isn't sufficient to cover fully the basic necessities of his household. However, this is his seventh lending cycle, and he thanks the micro-lender and Kiva for their unconditional support and for helping improve the standard of living for his family.

This new loan will be used for the construction of a room, which will allow more privacy in his home.
