A loan of $375 helped to build a security fence.

Robert Nicolas's story

Robert is a young man, age 26. He lives in the city of Imperial. He is a very charismatic guy with a strong desire to get ahead above all else. Everyday Robert works as a construction assistant and as a house painter. Using his earnings, he covers his student expenses with great effort, because he is currently studying Agricultural Engineering. Robert works about nine hours, and in the afternoons attends his school. Robert believes that he is getting ahead because he works hard and, above all, is very responsible.

Robert is very thankful to the Kiva lenders because, thankfully, this is the second time that they have given him support. He will be able to buy construction materials to be able to enclose the rear of his property with a fence because currently it is unprotected and isn’t very safe. In this way, Robert will be able to contribute to the well-being of his family and keep fighting each day to be able to make his biggest dream come true: to finish his Agricultural Engineering degree and to improve his family’s quality of life.
