A loan helped to buy a bigger quantity of cheese.


Jose Luis's story

The desire to succeed is noticeable in José Luis's face. With his wife's help he has managed to get ahead. He has been selling cheese for 28 years. He has done this in spite of the difficulties he has experienced. His daughter died and left them with her little baby to care for.

Little by little, he has gotten ahead with the loans provided by Kiva together with MiCrédito. He has managed to meet his customers' demand. That is the reason he has requested another loan to buy a larger quantity of cheese. This way he will be able to continue increasing his sales and getting better earnings.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Ginny Kalish.
