A loan helped to buy materials for maintaining his business location.


Alejandro Gonzalo's story

Alejandro has worked renting rooms for 4 years, with help from his wife, who is his right hand in administering this activity. As this business is his principal source of income, he's concerned about always making improvements to each room, so that his clients can enjoy quality service.

He will use his first loan to remodel the building. His tenants think he's a friendly, social, respectful, and hard-working person.

In order to continue growing his business, he's requesting a loan from MiCrédito, with funding from Kiva, in order to be able to buy materials, such as cement, paint, zine, sand, flooring, and tiles, for maintaining his building.

In the not-so-distant future, he wants to buy some land near his business to build other rooms, because there's always demand from clients who want this service.
