Alberto Lenin's story

Alberto Lenin is 28 years old, married and has a two year old son. He is from Managua, located in the central zone of the region. He likes to use his free time to spend quality time with his young son. Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources, he was not able to pursue university studies, but he would have liked to become a graphic designer.

Thanks to his entrepreneurial spirit and his desire to get ahead, he sells disposable plastic products such as plates, cups, spoons, forks, knives, cables, buckets, and puzzles. He will use the money from this loan to stock his business so that he can have a better income in the near future. Alberto works 10 hours a day at his post in order to provide better service to his customers.

Alberto Lenin is grateful to the Kiva lenders for providing people of limited resources in poor countries like Nicaragua the opportunity to have dignified work.
