A loan of $725 helped to buy tools and wood.


Mario Javier's story

Mario, 34, lives in the city of Ica with his wife and their four children. He is hard-working and enthusiastic. He dedicates all his efforts to moving his family forward. Unfortunately, due to a lack of economic resources and the need to work, Mario couldn't study a professional career in Business Administration. Mario works on his own initiative as a construction worker, completing various jobs in his city. He works every day for about 10 hours and he thinks it's going well because of his dedication and his kind treatment of customers. Mario is very grateful for the Kiva loans. Because of their help, he will buy wood and tools for work. This will allow him to provide services, and keep working woking toward his greatest dream of having his own home.
