German Gustavo's story

Germán Garzón Rodríguez bought wood materials and canvasses with his previous Kiva loan and was able to slightly increase his capital. At present, he is preparing himself to apply for his second Kiva loan. With it, he will buy turpentine, leather parchment, oil paints, canvasses, and beeswax to make lamps, coatracks and paintings. With these products he will diversify what he offers, because he brings new models to the market and he knows what will make an impact. He has all of his creativity and inspiration implicit in his products and serves his customers and admirers of good art.

“Thanks for letting my artistic work be known" is the message that German sends to his Kiva lenders.
