A loan of $1,150 helped buy wood for his woodworking shop.

Michael's story

Michael is 28 years old, very responsible, and dedicated to home and family. He lives in his parents' house with his wife, son, and parents. Since Michael was a small boy, he has been inculcated in the world of carpentry, thanks to his Father's dedication to the business. That's how Michael became attached to carpentry; and from that time forward, he has supported his family, thanks to his work. With his Father's experience and the help of all his family, he decided to open a shop in his home, selling whatever he makes.

The main problem in this work is obtaining the necessary material, due to scarcity and the price of wood. But thanks to Michael's responsibility and good references as a good client, he has been able to advance with his family. As a carpenter, he hopes to continue improving his work and to be able to offer better services to his customers and a better product.

For Michael, this is his 1st loan with Kiva and he will be very grateful for all the economic help he receives. For that reason, he is committed to being punctual in meeting his scheduled payments. Michael is requesting 3,000 sols to invest in the purchase of wooden planks, since this is the principal material with which he works.
