A loan helped to buy bread, hotdogs, mustard, pickles, cream and chiles for his fast food business.


Manuel Antonio's story

Manuel is a 45-year-old businessman who works selling fast food as a street vendor from a cart he pushes with a bicycle. This is how he earns a living and contributes to the development of his children, offering his family a better style of living.

Manuel has done this meaningful work for ten years, and enjoys the unconditional support of his wife. He now needs to expand his business, so he has come to Kiva, through MiCrédito, confident that he will receive a loan. With it he plans to buy bread, hotdogs, mustard, pickles, cream and chiles. In the near future Manuel wants to seek a new loan to transform his hot dog business into a hamburger business.
