A loan of $500 helped purchase cement at wholesale.


Andres's story

Andres lives in his aunt's house where he lives with his wife and his two little daughters. He began working in a cement factory four years ago where he saw that selling cement was a good business and entrypoint. Currently, he buys and sells cement from the factory since they give him a lower price and he sells it for two bolivianos more. In this way he gains life to bring bread home every day. Like many others, he has progressed gradually and after some time he says he will buy a little house for him and his family since it is a little uncomfortable since he lives with his aunt now. He is thankful to the institution and to Kiva for giving him a preferential cup and reducing the amount of his fee. He is appreciative of Emprender and Kiva for the confidence granted by providing the loan.
