A loan of $1,050 helped to buy raw materials and ingredients for his daily meals especially sauces and to add more chairs and work tools because he has many more customers.

Concepción Valerio's story

With his previous Kiva credit, Concepción bought a hotdog cart and chairs, and the money even stretched to buy some of the raw materials and ingredients he uses to make his delicious products. He is now applying for a new loan to buy a chiller and work instruments and to adapt his kitchen to improve working conditions and buy ingredients, as Christmas is coming, and hopes to make a lot of money during this period, when there is a big increase in sales. To his backers, he sends the following message: "I am very grateful for my previous loan. I hope you can continue to support me so my business can keep growing."
