A loan of $700 helped buy firewood, flour, cabbage, rice, oil and meat.

Alexander's story

Alexander is 31 years old and a Kiva client. He is very grateful for the support of his first loan since it came when he most needed it. He was able to invest more in his business to purchase raw materials like flour, meat, oil and vegetables needed to make his delicious enchiladas (tortillas filled with meat and rice). Alexander is now requesting a second loan in order to buy firewood, flour, cabbage, rice, oil, meat, etc. to make a great quantity of enchiladas, so he can improve his sales. He always has the idea of having a buffet offering homemade dishes.
