A loan of $375 helped to build cages for his guinea pigs and to buy tools.


Milton Silverio's story

Milton, 18, is a young man who very much wants to get ahead. Several months ago he managed with great effort to start his own small business selling guinea pigs and providing mechanical services. With the income from his job he's able to help his parents with the household expenses. He thinks he's getting ahead because he's very responsible and provides friendly service to his customers.

Milton's very grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to their help he'll be able to buy supplies to build cages for his guinea pigs and tools for his small repair shop.

This way he'll improve his income and continue striving to make his biggest dream come true: to have a large guinea pig nursery and a much bigger shop.
