Kiva loans to Mexico
I made a loan today to Julián Robledo López in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico.
The exterior of Julián Robledo’s house is not finished. He does not have the money to buy the material. He will take charge of making the improvement. He does the construction and repairs on his house. Julián is a family man. He has four minor children, and he would like to give them the best.
There is a theory called 'the broken glass' where neighbourhoods have less crime when there is less broken glass and graffiti around. I wonder if this loan to make the house look better will have effects like that.
