Luis Bolivar's story

For the past 15 years Luis has worked in the production of leather saddles, selling them in the market in his area at an excellent price. His saddlery business is one of the pioneers of the equestrian industry, since for some years Luis has been the official manufacturer for all horsemen in his community. Without any doubt he is the pride of all of his family, for being a talented and hardworking man.

To continue growing his business he is applying for a loan from Micrédito together with the help of Kiva to be able to buy fine leather and hemp to sew. In the near-term future he wishes to establish a leather shop in another municipality close to his community, and also publicize his product and talent through digital platforms.
