A loan of $1,000 helps to purchase hundred-weights of rice, beans, and sugar.


Mauricio's story

Mauricio is a 44-year old man. He earns his living buying and selling staple grains in his neighborhood and in neighboring regions. He has five years of experience in this valuable trade. During that time, the help he has received from his wife has been notable. Mauricio is a shopkeeper who has given his all for the love of his family and his desire to offer his two children a better standard of living.

Don Mauricio has come to the doors of KIVA and MiCrédito with confidence that he will get a loan to purchase hundredweights of rice, beans and sugar so he will have products for his grocery. In the near future, Mauricio's goal is to take over new areas of the market and generate employment.
