Juan Carlos's story

El Sauce is a beautiful western municipality surrounded by flower-covered mountains in winter. In El Sauce it is typical to see humble houses with tile roofs. There are many people here who are known for being very hard-working and tenacious.

Such is the case with Juan Carlos, age 55. His is married and has children. He has worked for many years in order to bring home the daily bread and so that his children would lack for nothing. Thanks to his work and support from his wife, who has a small business, he now has his own house. He has been improving the house little by little.

He wants to expand the house in order to give his children a good legacy. That is why he is requesting this loan to buy bricks, cement, and sand. He will use these materials to build a room so that his children have space and better living conditions.

He is grateful to Kiva and Ceprodel for the support given through these loans. The loans have helped him improve his family’s living conditions. He hopes that in the future they will continue helping him.
