Unfortunately, as a result of various circumstances,Alfredo is separated from his wife. However, he puts all his efforts into helping his son prosper. Alfredo was not able to study art as he had wanted because he had to work from a very young age in order to help his parents. In his spare time Alfredo likes to cook a delicious "sopa de leche" (rice pudding) to share with his family.

With his own initiative and with a lot of determination and dedication, Alfredo works as a security guard in a local shopping centre. He works every day for around twelve hours per day. He believes that the work is going well because he works well and because of the friendly treatment that he gives to others.

Alfredo is very grateful to Kiva lenders as, thanks to the help provided, he will be able to buy building materials, such as bricks, cement, sand and more. These will help him greatly to build a new room in his home. With this room, Alfredo and his family will have extra space that is secure and useful. Alfredo can then continue to work and put in the effort to achieve his great dream of giving his son a good education.

Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
