A loan of $375 helped to buy construction tools.

Alfredo's story

Alfredo, 45, is a responsible man. He lives with his six children, whom he educates and raises in the house he bought eight years ago. He earns a living doing a variety of jobs because of his constant expenses.

He earns his main income from his job as a bricklayer. He says he has contracts to build houses on a permanent basis and he never lacks work. For this reason he wants to buy more construction tools.

On the weekends he buys and sells animals. Also, his oldest son has a motorcycle taxi and also earns a good profit.

This is his first Kiva loan and he's grateful for the financial help to get ahead. He also promises to make his payments punctually.

Alfredo will invest the 1000 soles [PEN] in construction tools.
