A loan helped to purchase soft drinks, juices, groceries, cookies, and so, to be able to stock his business more.


Jose Lino's story

José is a 61-year-old man. He is generous and hard-working. Currently, he is married and has 2 children, of whom only one depends on him. Nine years ago, he decided to open a store, which has helped him to improve his income and quality of life. For him, the most important thing is his family and fulfilling the values and teaching his parents instilled in him.

For the first time, he has chosen a Kiva loan with MiCrédito, with which he plans to purchase soft drinks, juices, groceries, cookies, and so, to be able to stock his business more and to sell more in this Christmas season. Within a few years, he dreams of having a variety store which will be the largest in the zone and will generate jobs for his acquaintances.
