A loan of $1,000 helps to buy groceries to sell.


Junior Freddy's story

Junior is a 31 year-old merchant who owns a small grocery store and also sells prepared food. He has 2 years of experience with this business, and over this time he has relied on the valuable support of his wife. He is an essential pillar of his family.

Junior already had previous experience with loans from MiCredit and Kiva, which he used to buy plates, glasses, disposable utensils, meat, chicken, pork, and staple grains. At this time, he is feeling very pleased because he has expanded his business. In fact, he is so happy that he is returning once more to knock on the doors of MiCredito and Kiva, confident that he will be able to get a new loan to buy cheese, rice, beans, cooking oil, sugar, sweets, cookies, and sausages.

In the near future, he plans to convert his small grocery store into a substantial wholesale business.
