A loan of $850 helped to purchase a concrete mixer for his work.


Raul Alejo's story

Raul is a married man. He lives with his wife and two children in the town of Colcapirhua, province of Quillacollo in the department of Cochabamba. He is a construction worker who builds houses and buildings. Unfortunately, one month ago his concrete mixer was stolen from the warehouse at his workplace. For several weeks he worked without a mixer and had to do his work with his bare hands.

Raul received some marketing materials from CIDRE. Hence, he was able to request a KIVA-funded loan and bought a new mixer to catch up with his pending jobs. Today, Raul thanks KIVA loaners for the support they provide though micro-loans in Cochabamba, Bolivia.
