A loan of $550 helped to buy construction materials.


Wilmer Fortunato's story

Wilmer is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to the help they have given him he will be able to buy construction materials in order to be able to make improvements to his house. Above all, he will be able to improve the walls, roof, doors, and windows, which will allow him to improve the conditions in which he lives with his two youngest children, who are currently in school.

Wilmer works very hard in order to be able to give his family a better quality of life. He has worked as a construction worker and master contractor for 5 years. This work is his only source of income, and that is why he looks after his customers with a great deal of care and friendliness, and above all because every day he fights to make his great dream a reality: to finish his house and give his children a good education.
