A loan of $650 helped redoing the finishing on the interior of their bathroom.


Alvaro's story

Álvaro and his wife Adibe are originally from the city of Veracruz. They have been in the city of Nuevo Laredo for 20 years and this is where their three children (who are currently studying in college, elementary school, and middle school) were born. They want their children to have professional careers so they can have a better future and be triumphant. He is asking for a Kiva loan to redo the finishing on their bathroom, since it is currently in a very bad state and they want to avoid sicknesses. However, they don't have the money that they need to buy the supplies and pay for the person who would carry out the refinishing. Álvaro has worked in a factory where he manages the warehouse for 3 years. Part of the salary that he makes (which is their only source of income) will go towards paying off the loan. He wants to improve the living situation of his family and allow them to be in a safe place.
