A loan of $275 helped purchase a gas stove.

Robert Nicolas's story

Robert is a 26 year old young man who lives in the city of Imperial. He is very charismatic and above all he wishes to get ahead. Robert works as a helper in construction and a house painter day-to-day. With the fruit of his work going to his student expenses, he finds him self pursuing a degree in Agricultural Engineering. Robert works around 9 hours a day and goes to the schools in the evenings. He believes he is getting ahead because he tries hard and above all, he is very responsible.

Robert is very grateful to Kiva's loaners. Thanks to the help they've offered, he is able to buy a gas stove for his home. Currently, he is cooking with wood, and because of this, there have been some accidents. In this manner, Robert will be able to contribute to the well-being of his family and keep fighting each day to be able to make his biggest dream a reality: to finish his education in Agricultural Engineering and improve his family's quality of life.
