A loan helped to purchase new cleaning equipment.


Santiago's story

Santiago completely paid off his last Kiva loan, and has now qualified for another to expand his cleaning and repair company!

Over 20 years ago, Santiago came to the United States from Ecuador with the dream of creating a better life for both himself and his family. In 1998, he started working as a handyman for multiple hotels in the state of Florida. However “handyman” is most certainly an understatement. A jack of all trades, Santiago focuses on everything from maintenance to janitorial work and effectively ensures the hotels run smoothly and efficiently. In 2004, two hotels required Santiago to incorporate, and thus, Solutions Maintenance Corp. was born. He has received a steady flow of business over the past few years and has earned a reputation as a hardworking and friendly man. However, Santiago needs to purchase new cleaning equipment in order to provide better and expanded service to his growing customer base. Help this hardworking man make a better life for both himself and his family!
