A loan helped to purchase bananas, pineapples, coconuts, oranges, papayas, and mangoes.


Nelson Antonio's story

Nelson is a hard-working, honest man dedicated to his family. He began the business thanks to the support of his mother, since she helped him with his cart, the juicer, and the fruit he would need to make his juices. He now is motivated since he has his own business selling juices, with which he can help his mother. Nelson likes to walk around, always with his fresh and visible products, so that his customers can see the whole process which brings them their beverages.

Nelson has chosen a Kiva loan with MiCrédito, with which he plans to purchase bananas, pineapples, coconuts, oranges, papayas, and mangoes, to be able to offer his customers better products. Later, Nelson wants to be able to have his own business so that his customers are more comfortable.
