Alfonso Reynaldo's story

Alfonso is 30 years old, he lives in the city of Carhuaz, located in the north of Peru. Alfonso works in his small business selling sports clothes. He works approximately ten hours per day and can attend to up to 20 customers a day. He considers that he is getting ahead with his business because he is very friendly with his customers hence why they always come back to buy his products. Alfonso is very grateful to the Kiva loan lenders as it is thanks to the help that they have given him that he will be able to buy more merchandise for his business such as shorts, tracksuits and so on, with which he will have a larger variety of products and better attend to his customers. It is in this way that he will continue fighting to achieve his greatest dream: "Of having his own home and a larger business."
