A loan of $525 helped to upgrade the electrical wiring in her home.

Silvia's story

Silvia is requesting the loan in order to upgrade the electrical wiring in her home, as it is in very poor condition.

Silvia separated from her husband a short time ago, and she was the one left with responsibility for the family. She has two children.

Silvia works at a security guard company. With these earnings she will pay off the loan, as her two children look after the household expenses with the income they get from their work.

What they want is to improve their major personal asset, so that it is safer and in good repair.

Silvia is hoping for your cooperation in this loan, as she has previously had loans with Kiva that have enabled her to move forward in life and better her family's situation.
