Marlon Antonio's story

44-year-old Marlon Antonio comes from the deparment of Chinandega, which is located in the western region of the country. Marlon is known to be a responsible and hardworking person with good moral values. He works as an auditor for a local company. He has three children aged 19, 17 and 6 years, and they're all in school. He's requesting this loan in order to do improvements on his home, namely building a porch, since he has twice been a victim of robbery in his house and he wishes to safeguard his home and family. Marlon has already worked with Fundación and he has proven to be diligent with his repayments both in terms of schedule and form. Thanks to the loans he received from Kiva lenders, he was able to build his house - he built two rooms and fixed up the living room. With this loan he'll purchase construction supplies such as bricks, crushed gravel, sand, cement, iron, zinc, paint, and beams. Marlon gives thanks for the help provided by Kiva lenders to people of limited resources in poor countries like Nicaragua so that they can have a decent home to live in.
