Marvin Alonso's story

Marvin Alonso is 47 years old, married, and has three children (ages 23, 21, and 12), two of whom are under his responsibility since they are studying. He is originally from the city of Managua and manages a business in which he sells vehicle accessories such as tires, rims, grease, mirrors, and seat covers. Marvin has 25 years of experience in running his business, which is situated in a specific location in town. He is a hardworking and responsible gentleman. With his previous loans, he demonstrated that he has a good record of paying on time and in the correct manner.

The loan he is requesting will be invested as operating capital in order to restock his small business. As a result, he will have more income and be able to provide better conditions for his children. One of his dreams is to see at least one of his children become a professional. Marvin Alonso is grateful for the assistance Kiva lenders have provided to people who have limited resources and are from poor countries, such as Nicaragua. This enables them to have sources of decent work.
