Kevin's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy jeans, sweaters, women’s accessories, and household items, among others.
Kevin, age 21, has been selling varied merchandise for three years. He and his sister decided on this business as an idea to generate independent earnings to help with the family expenses. They both go to school, and they learned from their mother who devotes herself to commercial activity. They find their providers in the city of Medellín. It is the place where they buy good quality clothes, as their market demands. They get other various merchandise in the city of Barranquilla. They sell to their customers for credit and cash. Their customers are their classmates, neighbors, and people referred by these customers. He is currently applying for a Kiva loan, his first with the Fundación Mario Santo Domino. He will use the loan to buy jeans, sweaters, women’s accessories, and household items, among others. With this investment his sales will increase. He says that by having his inventory displayed, “Everything is visual". With greater stock he will sell a lot more. With this investment he will be improving his business.
