Neyl De Jesus
Neyl is 42 years old and lives in the municipality of San Jacinto where he makes a living selling coffee and coffee products in a kiosk that he has had since 2011. However, he has 11 years of experience in this work when he worked in SENA--National Learning Service, and was able to take advantage of the education provided. He organized business initiatives, selling coffee, milk shakes, iced coffee, and other products derived from coffee.

His clientele has now grown and he needs a greater infrastructure, which is why he now needs a Kiva loan, his first loan that he is taking out with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo. With the loan he will buy a coffee grinder, two tables, chairs and will pay for the repairs needed for his kiosk. He is very satisfied because he manages his business directly and uses organic coffee that he grinds himself and with the support of his wife. He buys directly from farmers located in Montes de María and he sells directly to the consumer. He has a dream to have a kiosk in Mexico and in New York in the future. However, his greatest challenge is to grow enough because he can only obtain the resources little by little. He is working gradually to accomplish this.
