A loan of $1,000 helps to purchase paste, a polisher, tire patch roller, patches, a pump and screws.


José Medardo's story

José is a 59-year-old man, married, responsible, honest, punctual, and respectful. For 4 years, he has had a car wash business, offering washing and polishing for cars, trucks, motorcycles, and bicycles. He used his first loan to expand the shed for his car wash, in this way improving the income from his business. His child is who supports him in each investment, so to get better results from each goal he sets.

With the hope of getting ahead with his business, he asked for another loan from MiCrédito, with the support of Kiva, to be able to purchase paste, a polisher, tire patch roller, patches, a pump and screws.

In the not-too-distant future, he wants to have a larger tire repair shop and to improve the facilities of his house.
