A loan of $825 helped repair the roof on his house.


Jimmy Alberto's story

Sr. Jimmy Alberto is a native of Managua where he has lived with his family for 25 years. He has been working for a state company as a security guard for three years. He has three school-aged children.

Jimmy Alberto has approached Ceprodel for a loan to repair the roof of his house over the winter. He will use the money to buy supplies such as zinc sheeting and roof supports and to pay for laborers.

He is grateful to Kiva and Ceprodel for the loans they give to poor people as without their support people with low incomes would not be able to get ahead. Jimmy Alberto would not be able to pay for the necessary repairs to his roof.
