Jose Javier's story

José Javier was born in the city of Coahuila and has lived in the city of Nuevo Laredo for more than six years. He is married to Maria Gloria and has three children in elementary school. José Javier is a night watchmen, and Maria Gloria sells tacos and juice in the morning at the school her children attend. They have applied for a Kiva loan because their house lacks water pipes and is in bad condition. They want to prevent an accident. José Javier will make the loan payments from his salary, and Maria Gloria will pay household and educational expenses from her business profits. They want a better life for their children and a better place to live.
