Mr. M. has owned a mobile publicity business for the last 10 years. He began his business when he found that it was no longer easy to find employment because of his age. He plays mobile audio announcements from the streets and distributes publicity fliers. “I have always said that age doesn’t stop anyone from being a useful person who can take care of himself. That is why I began this business which has allowed my wife and me to progress. Nevertheless, the sound system that I use was purchased 10 years ago, and it is starting to break down. That is why I am asking for a $1,200 dollar loan to purchase a sound system more suitable for the job. This will help me to be more efficient in my mobile publicity business and my clients will see more success in the products that they offer.”

Translated from Spanish by James Comstock, Kiva Volunteer.



El Sr. M. tiene un negocio de publicidad ambulante desde hace 10 años.
Este negocio lo inició porque debido a su edad ya no era fácil encontrar empleo.
Hace perifoneo por las calles y reparte volantes de publicidad.

“Siempre he dicho que la edad no es obstáculo para seguir siendo una persona útil y obtener su propio sustento, por eso emprendí este negocio que me ha permitido sacar adelante a mi esposa y a mi mismo.

Sin embargo, el equipo de sonido que utilizo lo compré hace 10 años, y ya está empezando a fallar. Por lo que requiero de un crédito de 1,200 dólares para adquirir un equipo de sonido que sea apto para mi trabajo. Esto me ayudará a ser más eficiente en mi servicio de publicidad ambulante y mis clientes tendrán mas éxito en los productos que ofrecen.
