A loan of $1,250 helped to buy building materials to repair the floor and lay tile.


Isidoro's story

Isidoro, 60, continues working with his taxi and his wife selling national traditional fried fast-food snacks. With the income they earn they support their 17-year-old son who is in fifth year of secondary school. They feel satisfied because they’ve provided education for their other children who are all now married and independent. Isidoro has gradually been doing home improvements and has also been repairing his vehicle when it’s been in poor condition with help from Afodenic and Kiva loans who he’s very grateful to for improving his living conditions. Now, with this ninth loan he wants to buy building materials and supplies to continue improving his house. This time he will buy sand, gravel, iron, cement and tile to repair the floor and to lay tile at home.
