Cesar Alex's story
Alex is 31 years old and lives with his wife in the city of Santo Domingo. He owns an auto repair shop and has lots of experience, since he started working when he was young at different shops where he learned a lot. He has lots of customers because he is well known in the neighborhood for his good work. He says things were difficult when he first started out, but little by little he was able to grow and now he has an adequate shop where he can work. A young helper works for him and his wife is in charge of selling lubricant and spare parts. They work together and support each other. Thanks to this business, Alex was able to buy his home and the commercial space where his shop is currently set up. He is new to Fundacion Alternativa, and will use his first loan to buy spare parts, since he does repairs at his shop and it is hard for him to go out because he has lots of work. He is confident that it will allow him to provide better service to his customers and to continue strengthening his business. Alex and his wife don't have any children yet, so they have been able to invest their earnings in their house and their shop. He hopes to continue to improve because he plans to eventually buy a small farm and also work in agriculture. He is grateful to Kiva for their support and for believing in his dream.
