A loan of $550 helped to buy construction materials.


Alex's story

Alex is a very hard-working young man and above all he wants to get on in life. He works as a cashier in a city supermarket chain, which gives him an income to cover his living expenses. Alex thinks his work is going well because he is friendly and responsible. Alex is grateful to the Kiva lenders since with the help they have given him he will be able to make improvements to the small modular home where he lives with his family. He will buy materials such as sand and cement to improve the floors and so he will be able to improve his family's quality of life and keep striving towards making his big dream a reality: to have his own house.
