A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase construction materials for his home.


Alvaro José's story

Sr. Alvaro is a resident of the town of Ticuantepe. He lives with his children and his wife, who works for a private household as a way of helping with the expenses. The plans for his family include improving their living conditions. His major challenge is not having enough money from his salary to make a one-time purchase of all of the construction materials for his home.

He is grateful to AFODENIC for providing Kiva funds to low-income people because the program allows them to repay in small installments until they are able to fully pay back their loans.
