Rodolfo used his previous Kiva loan to buy two washing machines. This enabled him to expand his customer base and earn money. Now he is preparing to buy merchandise to sell such as fans, blenders, irons and television sets. For this reason, he is today applying for his second Kiva loan. He is certain that, with this money, he will be able to make the most of the low interest rates in order to earn more and take advantage of the good discounts that he is able to get on these items on the market right now. His message to Kiva lenders is the following "Please continue supporting people with small businesses but big stories, so that they can continue strengthening their family income and increase the well-being of their households".
