A loan of $350 helped to build an enclosing wall in front of his house.

Javier Michel's story

Michel is from the city of Mérida but moved when he was very young with his parents to the city of Pedras Negras where he has lived for 30 years. With the hope of finding a better source of income, Michel has lived longer in Pedras Negras than in his natal city of Mérida. He is married and the father of two small daughters. He works for an international fuse manufacturer in the warehouse department. People that work with him say he is very responsible and always helping others.

At this time Michel has decided to request support through KIVA to build an enclosing wall for the family's safety and in the future to build a room.
