A loan of $625 helped to invest in working capital and buy raw material for making clay bricks, such as sand, earth and clay.

Vicente Ramon's story

Vicente Ramón is 47 years old, married, and from the town of Leon. His work is making clay bricks. The business is located in his home, and he has been in this business for 22 years. It came about because of his need to have a source of work, in order to improve his family's income.

Vicente Ramón has already had credit with the Foundation, and has shown his responsibility by making payments in a timely manner. The purpose of the loan is to invest in raw materials such as earth, sand and clay for making clay bricks.

Vicente Ramón is grateful for the help that the Kiva investors offer to low-income people and to poor countries such as Nicaragua, so that people can have a decent livelihood.
