A loan of $1,000 helped to build a room to store his merchandise comprised of tires and rims.


Mario's story

Mario is married, and he lives with his family in a small room in the Sopocachi area. He works with his wife selling auto tires and rims. Through their sales they try to support their family day to day.

The loan he requested is to be able to build a room that he can use to store his merchandise. This way they will be able to live a little more comfortably.

Mario’s dream is to be able to save enough to open a store in order to improve his quality of life.

This is the second time that he has worked with Kiva.
