Jorge Mario's story

Jorge is 21 years old. Three years ago, with the goal of having earnings to pay for his advanced studies, he started a business venture. He dedicated himself to the sale of foods and miscellaneous products in a corner of his house on the main street. In his business, he offers a great variety of products that are purchased by students, relatives, friends and other passers by who pass that corner regularly. It is a corridor with a lot of traffic.

His goal is to expand the products he offers and to have a commercial locale. Jorge conducts his activity from seven in the morning until six in the evening. He is supported by his father daily.

His main providers are distributors and wholesalers of foods who offer competitive prices. Every day, Jorge Mario wants his business to grow. For that reason, he needs to better his inventory of merchandise and to buy raw materials in greater volume to generate discounts and be able to offer better prices to his customers. That is the reason he comes to Kiva for a loan as a means to buy drinks, foods, miscellaneous items like cosmetics, perfume, and general clothing and shoes. With this loan, he will generate discounts that he will pass on to his customers making this a successful investment.

He thanks the financers of Kiva who will contribute to the satisfaction of the customer and the growth of the business.
