A loan helped to buy more groceries such as rice, oil, and meat to increase his sales.


Alvaro Enrique's story

Alvaro is 58 years old and lives in the municipality of Sampues. He’s happily married, and he has five children who are his biggest motivation. He’s a great entrepreneur who has a little store, a business he started seven years ago with his mother’s help. She not only supported him, but also taught him everything about this activity.

He already had a loan funded through Kiva before, and he’s very grateful to the people who supported him.

He lives in a post-conflict zone, which has been challenging, but he works hard for his family. He dreams of buying a house where his family can have an amazing life. That’s why he’s working so hard and why he pushes forward his business.

He’s asking for a loan to buy more groceries such as rice, oil, meat and other items to increase his sales.
