A loan of $500 helped to buy tools such as sandpaper, a drill and a motorcycle helmet.


Carlos Horacio's story

Carlos is a poor mechanic and he is grateful for the opportunities that arose from receiving a Kiva loan. He was very satisfied with his first loan as it helped him to invest more in his workshop by buying all the tools that he did not have on his inventory, such as drills and sandpaper. He is now very proud because he has been able to offer better service to his customers. Carlos needs a second loan to buy tools such as sandpaper, a drill and a motorcycle helmet, so that he can continue to expand the business and provide a more specialised service to customers.
