A loan of $1,450 helped to buy building materials.

Jose Fernando's story

José is 42 years old but has the charisma of a young 20-year-old. Every day he gets up very early to work at his small carpentry business. José has had the business for three years and, with it, he can earn an income to cover household costs, which he needs particularly as he is a father to two children.

José is grateful to Kiva lenders as, thanks to the help they have provided, José will be able to buy materials in order to make improvements to his home and, therefore, to improve his family's quality of life. José will then keep fight to make his dream, of expanding his business, a reality.
