Alfredo is a widower and has 10 children, 6 of whom are already independent adults. He lives in a house he owns and doesn't support anyone else other than his 4 underage children.
He's a serviceman for the National Ministry of Defense. With the current loan he intends to purchase construction supplies (cement, bricks, wire mesh, etc.) in order to build a hutch and start raising broiler chickens.
In the future he wishes to expand his business and acquire more experience. For that reason he pledges to repay the loan as scheduled so he can request more loans from Hluvuku.
The challenge he faces is getting an outlet for his product and presenting a challenge for the competition.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
