Irio Santiago's story

Irio, 34, is a hard-working man who is married and lives in Manantay with his family. He is a person who is very determined to get ahead and his family is his greatest motivation in life. It is for them that he works tirelessly in order to offer them the best of opportunities. For a year now he has been working at a hardware store and it is going well since he is very responsible, hard-working and entertprising, and because he is always kind and attentive to customers. Irio is grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to your support he will be able to begin a small hardware business and become independent and earn more income from his own business. This will encourage him to work even harder and improve his family's quality of life little by little.
