Aníbal's story

Anibal is 29 years old and he lives at home with his parents, his wife and their two daughters, aged 7 and 1. Anibal is an enterprising man and a fighter. Some years ago he decided to set up a small business in his house, in the region where he lives. The business consists of a small store that, with great effort and dedication. he has maintained through the passing of the years. He enjoys a large clients base and for Anibal the clients are what matters most. He always attends them with a smile and with great kindness, and for this reason he has earned the trust of many in the region. Additionally he always has what the clients are looking for. He dreams of providing his daughters with a better quality of life and his only source of income is his small business. He cannot distract himself from it and he struggles to keep it active. This is the reason why he was motivated to request a loan from Integral (Kiva Field Partner). He will invest in his store and he will supply it with all types of products, such as: rice, beans, sugar, milk, coffee, sweets, cooking oil, bathroom tissue, detergents, and other products that will help him attract more clients. His faith will not waiver that some day he will leave his situation and enjoy a better quality of life.
