A loan of $700 helps to purchase display cabinets, rice, beans, cheese, oil and candies.


Alvaro Jose's story

With a lot of hard work and love for his family, Álvaro decided to put together a small convenience store with the goal of improving his family’s quality of life. In his fundamental and valuable financial activity, he has the unconditional support of his mother and years of experience. He is a very talented young man who is currently in his final higher education courses.

Álvaro knocked on MiCrédito with Kiva’s doors with the hope of receiving a loan to purchase display cabinets, rice, beans, cheese, oil and candies. In the near future, this young man would like to turn his convenience store into a corner store.
