A loan of $200 helped to buy a gas stove.


Santiago Amador's story

Santiago is thirty-eight years old and works as an assistant in a hardware store in the city where he lives. With the income he makes in his humble work, he is able to cover the home expenses. He is the father of three children. Santiago is thankful to the Kiva investors. Thanks to the help that they have offered him, he is able to buy a gas stove. He presently cooks with a kerosene stove that is in bad condition. Buying a new gas stove will allow him to improve the quality of life for his family, and to continue fighting to make his dream come true, which is to become a mechanic.
