A loan of $1,725 helped to finish building a room on the upper floor of his house.


Justo's story

Justo is from the state of Veracruz. He is very committed to his work and his family. In the past, he has received loans from Kiva which he has invested in his business. He is requesting this loan to finish building a room on the upper floor of his house. This room will be for his teenage children who he would like to provide with more comfort so that each one can have their own space and privacy in the house. Justo and his wife Antonia have been working in their business for more than 12 years. They started out with a small taco stand but the business has grown over the years. They now have three small trucks which are fitted out for selling beef barbacoa tacos. With the income from his business, Justo plans to repay his loan and cover both his family expenses and his children's school expenses. He would also like to continue helping other members of his family by providing them with jobs in his taco business.
