Eddy Alfredo's story

Eddy is a 57-year old man who is married and has a son. He lives in the department of Chinandega in a neighborhood located on the west side of the country. He's a hard-working, responsible and honest man who gives everything in his power for his family's future, and has worked in a welding garage for 31 years. He started to work as an assistant but, following his entrepreneurial spirit, decided to become his own boss and started his business with a lot of effort, dedication and sacrifice. His only child attends university and receives his unconditional support so that he'll have a good future and become a good professional.

Eddy is requesting a loan to invest in his business (purchase of welding machinery, working tables and iron, among others) and improve his income, so that he'll be able to keep helping his son to finish his degree and become a real professional. Eddy is grateful to Kiva lenders for allowing him to improve and grow his business.
