A loan of $450 helped to install the electrical wiring at his house.


Gustavo's story

Gustavo is a 31-year old man from the city of Michoacán. He has lived in the city of Nuevo Laredo for over 20 years and is married to Maria Luisa, with whom he has two children in primary school. He is requesting a Kiva loan to change the electrical wiring of his house, as it is currently in bad condition. The new wiring needs to be installed before any accident happens. Gustavo has been working for a construction company for 5 years. Part of his earnings go towards loan repayment, as this is his only income source (his wife takes care of the children). His goal is to improve the heritage of his children and to provide them with a safe place to live.
