Bryan Leninyer's story

Bryan is an enterprising youth of 24. He is currently married and has a small son for whom he hopes to improve as a person and get ahead as a businessman. More than a year ago, thanks to help from his dad, he decided to start a small convenience store in his house. With much sacrifice and dedication, he has managed to to expand it a little more. For him, perseverance is the key for his business to be able to grow and to offer a better life to his family.

He has decided to choose a Kiva loan with MiCredito, with which he plans to purchase juices, soft drinks, groceries, personal hygiene products, and vegetables. He has an objective to sell more in this next season and offer a greater variety of products to his customers. Within 10 years, Bryan envisions having a mini-supermarket, with which he can supply the demands in his area and leave solid assets to his son.
