Joaquin Javier's story

For 12 years in a row Joaquín has worked tending to his small grocery store, which he built with a lot of effort and dedication. His young 12-year-old son is in school, which is why Joaquín makes the effort every day to support his education. In his journey in business he has always had the support of his wife.

His vision for expanding his business has led him to knock on the doors of MiCrédito and Kiva to request a loan that will enable him to buy cylinders of gas, powdered soft drinks, sweets, homestyle soups, cookies, rice, beans, oil, cheese, and sugar.

He plans to convert his grocery store into a variety store in the near future.
