A loan of $400 helped to buy a stove and a refrigerator.


Alex Wuilmer's story

Alex is 35 years of age and lives in the city of Ica, characterized by its warm and welcoming climate. He lives alongside his wife and his mother, as they have supported her by providing her with a place to live. With much enthusiasm and dedication, Alex has worked as a taxi driver for 2 years. With the fruits of his labour he can provide for the home expenses. He works around 9 hours a day, and can attend to up to 15 customers daily; he believes his work is going well because he is very determined, and above all because he has a strong desire to advance himself. Alex is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, as this is the second time that they have given their great support, and on this occasion he will be able to buy appliances for his home, such as a stove and a refrigerator. Currently he only cooks over wood and they have no place to preserve their food. In this way he will be able to provide a better quality of life for his family, so he will be able to continue working to realize his biggest dream: "to give a better quality of life and above all to build a home for his mother".
