Alejandro Jose's story

Alejandro is a married father of two young children. He is from the city of León, which is located in the northern part of the country. He is known for being responsible, hardworking, and driven to better himself. Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources, he was not able to pursue a degree and he instead had to work from a young age. This has motivated him to keep working to offer his young children stability so they will have a better future and become upstanding people.

Thanks to his hard work and desire to get ahead, he has a "pulpería" business located in his home. A "pulpería" is a small store that sells food products. He is requesting this loan to buy such as rice, beans, sugar, bread, eggs, milk, juices, sodas, matches, and single cigarettes. He spends 12 hours a day at his business selling his products so that in the near future he will be able to make more profits. Alejandro is thankful for the help Kiva's lenders provide to people with few resources in poor countries like Nicaragua so they can do respectable work.
