A loan of $200 helped to remodel his home for the rainy season.

Marcelino Luis's story

Marcelino, 41, is an entrepreneurial man and worker who lives in the District of Huarmey with his wife and daughter.
He has fought to make his family’s life better and improve their quality of life.
For the last three years he has worked buying and selling animals intended for consumption, which has been successful due to the amount of customers that he has and the competitive prices that Marcelino offers his products.
But this exemplary man does not just stop at this job. For the last two years he has worked in the asparagus fields as a cutter, in this way generating an additional source of income.
Marcelina would be eternally grateful for the Kiva loans, as with the help that the loans would give him, he could remodel and reinforce his house in order to protect his family during the rainy season. With this, he would feel much more comfortable in his home and would provide greater security to his family. In the future he could accomplish his greatest dream: “to have his own car.”
