A loan of $1,150 helped to buy more inventory for his hardware store.

Rigoberto's story

Don Rigoberto is 50 years old, lives in Esteli and has 6 children. He has a hardware store and sells tools. He thanks each and every Kiva investor who trusted and supported him so that his business could succeed. He used the 1st loan to buy keys, nails, locks, valves, measuring tapes, hammers, machetes, brushes. That is to say, he stocked his hardware store with useful tools, necessary for his clients. It was a good change for his business and the income has been better than before and more importantly payments have been on time. He is very happy to be able to access credit on a timely basis when needed, as there are always opportunities for growth. He wants the 2nd loan to buy locks of all sizes, nails, hoses, rubber boots, waterproof coats, welding gloves, light bulbs. He wants to offer new products to his customers. In the future he wants to sell building materials so that his customers can find all kinds of home improvement items in his hardware store.
