A loan of $200 helped to install an electricity meter at his house.


Augusto's story

Augusto is an excellent person. He is 66 years old and married. He lives in San Martin with his family. Throughout his life Augusto has done various jobs from farming to raising animals and selling groceries at a small store that he was able to open at his house. He is a person who has always struggled for what he wants. It did not bother him to work day and night in order to be able to provide his family with better life opportunities. Thanks to this, his children are now good people, and they support Augusto unconditionally. Augusto wants to improve his family’s quality of life. That is why he is grateful to the Kiva lenders. With the support they have provided, he will be able to install an electricity meter at his house. This way his wife will be more comfortable and safer. He will continue enjoying his family for many more years.
