A loan helped to purchase a bench, sandpaper, gold, silver, and bronze.


Otto Elmer's story

Gold work is the trade in which Otto works, from which he gets money to contribute to his family's expenses. His customers say that he is a specialist in making gold and silver items and it is for this that his merchandise is highly sought out. For this merchant, having the support of his spouse is very important. Every day from six in the morning, he opens the doors of his business with the hope of getting good sales.

Otto has already had previous experience with the Kiva loans with MiCrédito. With the loan he received, he purchased gold and silver. At this time, he wants to strengthen it so that, once again, he has knocked on the doors of these two organizations, to purchase a bench, sandpaper, gold, silver, and bronze. Among his short-term plans, he is thinking of establishing a jewelry store.
