A loan of $775 helped to buy a compressor engine.


Luis Ramon's story

Tidiness and cleanliness are the main characteristics of Luis’ small workshop, where he repairs a great number of tires every day. At the same time, he offers high-quality products and excellent service. He is 42 years old, married with three children. He is a hard-working and enterprising man. He started his business 14 years ago with the aim to improve his economic situation and, bit by bit, with the help of his wife, he got ahead. Luis aks for a new loan to buy a compressor engine. With this engine, he hopes to be able to repair more tires, because it will streamline his work. So he will be able to attract more customers. He is very grateful for his first Kiva loan via MiCrédito, because he could buy products for the small grocery store of his wife, which was a great economic support for the family. Therefore, he hopes to be able to continue to work and to offer his family an education and good health.
