A loan helped to buy bananas, malangas, aubergines, lemons and yucca.


Alvaro Ernesto's story

Alvaro is a vegetable lover which is why he has entered into the trade of selling bananas, squash, malangas, bananas, lemons and yucca.

In his valuable business, he works independently and has sixteen years of experience. He is a fundamental pillar for his children and the rest of his family.

His business is very visited by his customers as he attends to them in an educated, happy way and above all because his prices are affordable.

Alvaro has knocked on the doors of MiCredito along with Kiva, with the hope of getting a loan to buy bananas, malangas, aubergines, lemons and yucca.

In the not so distant future, Alvaro wants to be the owner of a self-sustaining shop.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Erica McLay.
