A loan helped to purchase more medicines to continue selling.


Modesto's story

Modesto, 39 years old, studied through secondary school, is partnered, and his partner works at the household tasks. He has two children and the older one goes to school.

Modesto works selling medicines, he learned this when he worked as an employee in a pharmacy and noted that it was profitable. He decided to begin his own business and works from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.

His previous Kiva loan helped him in his business and he is paying off the debt. He needs another loan to purchase more medicines to continue selling.

His dream is to manage to establish his own pharmacy and that his children become doctors.
