Emilio Bernabé's story

Emilio lives in El Sauce, a beautiful, charming town with a variety of business enterprises. Emilio is a young, 36 year old man who works hard for his life and that of his family. He has three children under his care. He is a motorcycle mechanic and owns his own business, located at his home. He provides repair services to various customers in town. Today, he sees the need to repair his home’s roof. For this reason, he is requesting financing from Kiva and Ceprodel to purchase cement, sand, zinc metal sheets, and to pay for labor costs. This loan is very important because it would allow him to live in better conditions with his family. He is grateful to Kiva and Ceprodel for helping him with the loan and for always thinking about people’s desires to live in better conditions.
