A loan of $925 helped to do finishing work to the outside of his house.

Pedro Clemente's story

Pedro is 46 and from the city of Nuevo Laredo. He is a widower and has four children under his responsibility. They are going to school: two in high school and two in primary school. He is an employee of a transportation company and works as a traffic coordinator. He is applying for a Kiva loan in order to do finishing work to the exterior of his home before the rainy season arrives and there is damage to the structure and his furniture.

As he does not have the the money needed to buy materials and pay the person who will be hired to carry out the improvement work. He wishes to improve his legacy to his children and for this to be in the best condition. Part of the income he gets from his work is to pay the loan and this is his sole source of income for his family.
