Alfredo works daily in his business as a carpenter, especially in the construction of prefabricated houses. He works about 10 hours a day and can serve up to two clients per day, since he is a bit of a workaholic. He thinks he does well in his business because he is very responsible and above all honest with customers, and for that reason they always recommend him.
Alfredo is very grateful to Kiva lenders since thanks to the help they have given he will be able to make improvements to his home such as building walls, because his home is currently made of plywood and woven mats. In this way he can continue improving his family's quality of life and working to fulfill his greatest dream: "To give a good education for their children and to have a larger carpentry shop."

About Housing Loans
