Rafael's story

Rafael is applying for his second Kiva loan because he wants to buy soft drinks and other beverages to sell. He is getting ready for the end of the year, when he sales increase. His previous Kiva loan was invested in 30 cases of beer and 8 cases of Poni Malta. He sold these, reinvested and used the new profit for his wellbeing and his family's. When speaking of the financiers, Rafael says: "Thanks to them I have been able to make my business grow and been able to improve my own quality of life and my family's." He also expresses that thanks to his work in the business, he feels like a useful person to his family and society.
