Jairo's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy better equipment for his print shop.

Jairo's story

Jairo is 52 year old man who is responsible and very industrious. He is married and has two children who are now grown. He started working when he was 12 years old which has taught him that hard work is rewarded and that is why day after day he gives his very best. He currently has been working at his own print shop for 20 years.

He has decided to get a loan through Kiva and Mi Crédito that he plans to invest in better equipment for his print shop as well as do maintenance on the ones he already owns. He believes that with this loan he will be able to meet his end-of-year goals and hire more employees to grow his business so that within a few years he will see his business become the biggest print shop in the northern zone.
