A loan of $550 helped to re-install electricity.


Romelia's story

Romelia is a hard-working woman. She has been married to Manuel for 25 years. Both of them are taking care of their granddaughter.

They have been in their house for 23 years, and during this time it has deteriorated. However, what needs to change urgently is the installation of electricity. This is because they have suffered from energy shortages, which have damaged some electrical appliances.

This is what they want to avoid. That is why they are asking for help through Kiva in order to completely change the electrical wiring.
