Nicaragua
Leon, Nicaragua / Spare Parts

A loan of $1,000 helped to invest in working capital and to buy spare parts for vehicles, such as wheel rims, oil, breaks and tires.


Marvin Alonso's story

Marvin is a 48-year old man, married and father of three children who are under his responsibility. He is from Managua, located in the central part of the country. He is known for being a hardworking and responsible man with a strong willingness of self-improvement. Unfortunately, he could not attend university and needed to work since he was very young. For this reason, he fights every day to provide his children with a better future.

Thanks to his hard work and willingness to get ahead, he started his business selling spare parts for vehicles. He enjoys his job and works approximately 10 hours per day. He will use the loan to invest in working capital and to buy spare parts for his business, such as wheel rims, oil, breaks and tires, with a final goal of improving his income in a near future.

Marvin is grateful to Kiva lenders for the support they provide to people with limited resources in poor countries like Nicaragua and for making it possible for them to have decent jobs.
