but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped us to Open a Vegan Pizza Restaurant and overcome the COVID-19 Crisis.

Damian's story

My name is Damian, I am a Kiva re-borrower and a passionate Kiva advocate, after a few years working in the hospitality industry in the Caribbean and owning a small food location on the beach, I have acquired a building where I operate a Vegan Hostel, due to the Covid-19 crisis we had to close the operation temporarily. Few weeks after the emergency an incredible woman who I know for few years owns two successful veggie restaurants in Puerto RIco named Peace n’ Loaf, she said; Damian let's open a an express version of my creation and I will help you with the process. Peace n’ Loaf Express' plan is to feed more people with local healthy food, contribute to our local agricultural economy by purchasing from their harvest and provide a source of employment to locals. The restaurant will be located at the first floor of the same building of the vegan hostel, the location is perfect as the guest and the local community will enjoy, eat, meet and share great experiences.
