A loan of $900 helped to buy building materials.


Joel Alexander's story

Joel, a young man, lives in the municipality of Ticuantepe with his wife. His future plans are to finish building his house. As they work to support themselves and pay the household expenses, Joel is very happy for the support given him by Afodenic through Kiva, as his previous loans allowed him to continue improving their living conditions. All building materials increase in price each month and his economic situation doesn't allow him to make a one-time purchase of materials such as zinc, cement, iron, wood, etc., as he is a cook in a restaurant in Nicaragua and his salary is very low.
