A loan of $975 helped to buy oil-based paints, rollers, brushes, ladders, black plastic, and paint thinner.


Omar Isidro's story

Omar Isidro is 39 years old, married, and has two children (ages 16 and 9). He is from the town of León, a place that is located in the western part of the country. Omar provides painting services as a contractor to different businesses in his town. He has 15 years of experience in this line of work.


Omar’s business was started out of necessity because he needed work so that he could provide financial stability for his children. He has demonstrated responsibility with his previous loans, since they have been very helpful in continuing his business and maintaining a source of income.


This needed loan will be invested as operating capital for purchasing materials such as oil-based paints, rollers, brushes, ladders, black plastic, and paint thinner. Omar Isidro is grateful for the help that Kiva lenders provide to people who have limited resources and are from poor countries such as Nicaragua so that they can have a decent life.
