Alfredo lives in the Mariscal area of Santa Cruz. He had an accident two years ago and lost an eye while working in a private business repairing motors. After he was injured, he decided to open his own shop doing the same thing. He has had his own business for seven years. He has good workmanship and for that reason is sought out in different parts of our city. He is married with three small children. His wife is a homemaker, and he is the sole support for the family. The money from this loan will be used to purchase an engine lathe which he will use in his work. Alfredo is very happy to have a Kiva rate as it provides an incentive to pay and to later take out another loan. He is a responsible and hardworking person, and is very thankful to Emprender and Kiva for the trust placed in him with this loan.
