A loan of $500 helped to buy wood, sandpaper, paint, and varnish.

Alberto Jose's story

Alberto is a humble man of 53. He is a Kiva client and works as a carpenter. His first loan was a great help to him, as he was able to buy all the raw materials he needed for his furniture, including paint, varnish, glue, and sandpaper. In the past he did not have many economic resources to work with, and the loan arrived just when he needed it most. He was able to pay off his loan with no problems. He continues to work hard to keep his business going and increase his income. Today he needs a second loan to buy wood, sandpaper, glue, paint, and varnish. He hopes to be able to meet his customers' needs.
