A loan helped to purchase oil, sugar, sweets, rice, and cattle.


José Manuel's story

For eight consecutive years, José has worked selling cattle and attending his small convenience store. With great sacrifice he has gotten ahead little by little. In this essential work, he has the unconditional support of his children and wife. He is a businessman with countless life goals and a commitment to improve his family's lifestyle.

José has knocked on Kiva's doors with MiCrédito, with the hope of obtaining a loan to purchase oil, sugar, sweets, rice, and cattle. In the not so distant future, José has the goal to increase his cattle herd.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Emily Griffith.
