Alvaro's story

Alvaro is 36 years old and lives in the municipality of Chimore in the province of Cochabamba. He is an engineer and supports himself by providing services especially on a large scale. Alvaro is a simple person and has always been accustomed to working in the country. His start in his profession did not go well as he had numerous setbacks and frauds on the part of companies who used him and then did not pay him in accordance with their contracts. Thus he had to learn from this experience to make the most of things. Now he has recovered, and is dedicating himself to a work of great scope. He heard about Kiva loans and therefore is requesting one to be able to buy a plot of land in order to establish himself without needing help from others. His dream is to have a full life with some savings in order to begin a family and have better days due to his own hard work.
