A loan of $1,675 helped to purchase car spare parts.


Kara's story

Kara is 67 years old. He is a father of eight children and a grandfather of many. All of his children are grown up and have their own families and kids. Kara's grandchildren attend school. Kara loves spending time with his grand children, but he also finds time for his work. Kara is an auto-mechanic. For more then 37 years he has been repairing cars. He loves his work and is not planning to retire any time soon. Kara would like to take out this loan to purchase spare auto-parts, among them a pump, three reduction drives, a piston, 10 gas cylinders and a few other parts. Since Kara doesn't have many saving of his own he needs to ask for a loan. Kara hopes that he will get help from Kiva because the world is never without kind and good people.
