A loan of $275 helped to buy bricks, cement, sand and pay for manual labor.


Martín Antonio's story

Martín Antonio is 66 years old, married, and very Christian. He educated his children in the best possible way with good moral and religious principles. His children are of good character and living independently with their own homes.

Martín set a goal to finish building the kitchen and bathroom of his house, which is why he needs the credit to buy bricks, cement, sand and hire manual labor to have a dignified home with all the adequate conditions for his wife and him. Also to provide his children with adequate conditions when they visit.

In spite of having scare resources, he has the vision to get ahead, to improve his quality of life, and hopes that KIVA and Ceprodel (MFI) help him realize his dream to see his house finished with the help of this loan. He's thankful for the unconditional support offered to people with scarce resources.
