A loan of $650 helped to buy a new router tool.

Jose Luis's story

José Luis is very hard-working. To be able to get on in life and pay his maintenance bills he works in his small carpentry business, working about ten hours a day, in which time he can deal with up to ten clients. José thinks that his work is going well because he is very friendly to his customers and above all because they find him responsible and reliable.

José is grateful to the Kiva lenders because with their help he will be able to buy a new router tool. The one he has doesn’t work very well anymore and the finish on his work doesn’t turn out as well as it should. In this way then, he will have the appropriate tool for his work which allows him to offer better quality to his customers. In turn, this will improve his income and he can work towards making his dream come true; “to expand his business and have a great carpenter’s workshop”.
