A loan of $1,500 helped to purchase pantry items to stock the store.


José Marcos's story

José studied up to the fourth grade, is married, and his children now live on their own.

José has a store where he sells staple products. He established it due to the customers' demand and because it would serve him to get ahead.

Previously, he was supported by 2 Kiva loans which served him in his work and he very punctually paid off both debts. He needs another loan to purchase pantry items to stock the store.

He wants to improve his financial situation and trusts that the loan will help him achieve it little by little.
