Juan Francisco's story

Juan Francisco is 48 years old, single, and has two children, ages 12 and 15 who attend school. He works as a mason and has had this business for 13 years and works on contract for companies and private individuals. Over the years he has earned a good reputation for his work . His goal for this loan is to buy supplies, such as lumber, measuring tapes, shovels, levels, ladders, spoons, carts and hoses. In the picture he is showing off some of the work he does to earn a living. Juan Francisco is grateful for the help that the Kiva lenders provide to people of limited resources in poor countries like Nicaragua so they can have a dignified source of employment.
