A loan of $700 helped to buy leather that he can cut and sell to the shoe shops where he works.

Hector's story

Hector is single and has no children. He lives at his parents’ house where he occupies a room. Hector is a university student, but he also works as an assistant leather cutter at two shoe shops in the city. His job helps him to cover personal, school, and household expenses.

Hector works approximately eight hours a day and devotes the rest of the time to his studies. The loan he is requesting will be used to buy leather for his work. By having cut leather that he can sell directly at his jobs, Hector will be able to generate more income.

Hector's dream is to become independent and help alleviate some his parents’ expenses. This is the first time he has requested a Kiva loan.
