A loan of $350 helped to buy a toilet, sand, and cement for a bathroom.


Ernesto Jose's story

Ernesto is 30 years old. His wife is a homemaker; she hasn't been able to find work. They have three children. He has to work a lot, only on his salary sometimes, so he can give them a decent life and they can study. He works in a coffee company and his biggest desire is to continue improving his house.

He's going to use this loan to install a bathroom. He'll buy a toilet, sand, and cement so they can have better living conditions and especially so it will look better.

Little by little he has been improving the infrastructure with loans from AFODENIC through Kiva funds. He's very happy about this important support.
