A loan helped to purchase planes, sandpaper, nails, bolts, wood, varnish, and a measuring tape.


Santamaría Francisco's story

Passing where Santamaria lives, one can see him from five in the morning sanding the wood to then design and make the furniture he sells from his house and to order. At this time, his business is stable thanks to the previous financing he got from MiCrédito and Kiva, for which he is grateful and has such confidence that he asks for another Kiva loan with the support of MiCrédito to purchase planes, sandpaper, nails, bolts, wood, varnish, and a measuring tape. His goal is to continue outfitting his small shop.
