A loan of $1,425 helped to buy new clothes to sell.


Alberto's story

Alberto, 40, is married and has five children who are all in school. Two of his children help him in his business in the mornings and then in the afternoon they go to school.

Alberto has had his business for 16 years. He began by selling merchandise such as soap, combs, brushes, mirrors, etc. and with help he received from FAPE and Kiva, he began to sell clothing such as men’s pants, shirts, T-shirts, women’s shirts, and socks.

He is requesting another loan to buy new merchandise (pants, blouses, socks, etc) and especially to buy new and modern clothing to be able to grow his business and in this way continue to help his children so that they can finish school.
