A loan of $925 helped to purchase goods for his neighborhood store.


Pedro Gilberto's story

Pedro Gilberto is 62 years old, and has an older son who helps him in the business. His son is with him almost all the time and Pedro attends to his business with a personal touch. He is from Colonia San Jose, in the municipality of Nueva Guinea. He has worked in his small neighborhood store for the past 20 years, as it is his main source of income to meet basic needs.

He needs this loan to stock his neighborhood store with products so that he can increase his chances of sales and increase earnings, which would allow him to improve his living conditions. He hopes to be a return lender with Kiva, who he thanks for this support which he truly needs; he is a responsible, humble, and creative person.

His biggest wish is that his son grows more within the business and becomes a great person, and that they do not lack anything.
