A loan of $400 helped to replace his roof.


Felipe Aaron's story

Felipe is originally from Veracruz, from the town of Amatitlan. He arrived with his parents 10 years ago, in search of better work opportunities because they were very scarce and they wanted to get ahead and have a better life. He met his wife after arriving here and they have a son. Felipe lives with his wife, his son, and his father whom he supports financially, as he is elderly. Even though he works as a mason, he still helps him because he knows that he doesn’t have the strength he used to have. He does this in the mornings and works at a factory that manufactures products for export in the evenings. In the mornings he helps his father and relaxes in the evenings. He says that he does this in order to have a greater income and in this way can build his house little by little and has built what he has now with great effort. He is asking for support from Kiva in order to replace his roof. He has a metal one and would like a concrete one
