A loan of $1,275 helped to buy tires to sell..


Elvio's story

Elvio is from the city of Santaní. He is married and has children. He buys and sells new and semi-new tores. He also does tire repair.

He is a hardworking, responsible and very honest man. He says he started to work as an assistant in tire repair and later became a driver. His dream was always to work for himself and not depend on anyone. Later, through his hard work and dedication, he already has his own business.

He has gone to the Foundation and to Kiva seeking financial help to buy more tires and in this way meet his customers' needs and offer a good service.
