A loan of $375 helped to purchase a vehicle.


Mario Martin's story

Mario is a young, 23 year old entrepreneur with a strong desire to succeed. His is single and lives in Nazca with his family. He has been a construction worker for over three years, and it is going very well because he is very hard working, responsible, honest, and very dedicated to his work. Mario is grateful for the Kiva loans because with the help they have provided, he will be able to purchase a vehicle to transport himself between home and work, and save money on tickets. With this, he will continue striving further and be able to fulfill his great dream, “to study for a degree in civil engineering”.
