A loan of $675 helped to buy raw materials like sand, cement and concrete blocks.

Alvaro Ramon's story

Alvarado, 24, lives in Libertad. He started the business having learned how to make concrete blocks when still a boy. He gradually started his own business to earn higher income. Currently, his work selling concrete blocks is his source of daily support; he works all day with two people.

His difficulty is his illness which at the moment is under control. He also collects the money he charges for what he delivers. He’s not married and has no children to support but so he supports himself; he pays his own expenses and buys what he wants.

He wants to use this loan to buy sand and cement in order to sell more blocks. Alvarado wants his business to continue growing every day so that he can open his own branch of DISENSA (a firm that sells construction supplies).
