Mauro Gregorio's story

Mauro, 32, is both father and mother to his four children, Javier, 14, Anderson, 12, Mauricio, 7, and little Emanuel, 2. The three eldest study at a center close to his work. Mauro is seeking the well-being and prosperity of his family by selling fast food: french fries, roasted meat, bananas with cheese, etc. He has been in business for several years, working outside of the education center several hours in the morning and afternoon, when the students come out to buy his products.

Mauro lives in Santo Domingo in the community called Cooperativa Santa Martha, sector 7. He lives with his children and cares for them without neglecting his role as father despite the long work hours. This will be his fourth loan from the Fundación. He is a well-known client and very responsible in his loan payments. He needs the loan to expand his small business and buy a new oven and other practical utensils.

Mauro is grateful to the Fundación and, especially, to Kiva, who have allowed him to realize his goal of improving his work situation.
