Ruben De Los Angeles's story

Rubén de los Ángeles is 46 years old, single, and the father to five children who are 9, 10, 20, 25, and 26 years old. The two youngest are students at primary school. This small businessman is a contractor. Together with his team, he does masonry and welding jobs. He has done this work since he was young.

He is asking for this loan to make improvements inside his home, including putting up walls and constructing ceilings. Since he got the house, he had plans to do this project, but it seemed impossible because of a lack of funds. Rubén has the support of his older children who are already independent.

To make the repairs, he will purchase blocks, cement, zinc, and other construction materials. His dream is to finish remodeling his home. Rubén is very grateful to Kiva investors who are providing support in order to have a decent working environment.
