A loan of $375 helped to improve his oral health.


Victor Manuel's story

Victor lives in Parcona district. This district is known for the friendliness of its people and, above all, for its hot climate. As his family had limited financial resources, Victor was only able to study up to the fifth year of his secondary education. However, he would have liked to have studied for a degree in mechanical engineering.

Victor works every day in his small metal shop which enables him to cover his household expenses. He is able to serve up to three customers a day as it takes a while to prepare the doors that he makes according to their size. He believes that he is making progress in his business because he is very friendly with his customers and, above all, he carries out his work very responsibly.

Victor is very grateful to Kiva lenders because, thanks to their great support, he will be able to improve his health. He will be able to pay for dental treatment that he needs because of an accident. He will be able to have his false teeth made up and thereby enjoy a better quality of life.
