A loan of $800 helped to buy clay.

Antonio's story

Antonio is from the city of Santaní. He is 35 years old, single and has a young son who goes to school and depends on him.

Antonio runs a 'olería', a place where bricks are made from clay, in his house. By means of this work he has been able to give his family all that they need in order to have a dignified life without suffering hardships. He is a hard working person who wants to get ahead and progress and this is why he always makes a great effort.

He is requesting a loan to buy clay, which is fundamental for his job. He is grateful for the help he receives from the Fundación and from Kiva, as it is of great help.
