Jairo Jose's story

Jairo lives in the municipality of Ticuantepe with his wife and children. He works for a private business and his wife sells cosmetics. The two of them share the household expenses.

Currently he needs to make some changes to his house because the rain comes in as the roof is damaged and he wants his children to have better living conditions. With the loan he will buy: corrugated zinc plates, perlines, cement, sand, etc. He is grateful to Afodenic and Kiva lenders for their support.
