A loan of $850 helped to purchase rice, sugar and flour.

Julio Alberto's story

Thanks to his first Kiva loan, Julio has been able to grow his bakery so that it has been transformed into a mini-market. He is selling not only bread, but also rice, sugar, flour and other supplies for daily life. Before he received his first loan, he sold out of a basket on the street. In his mini-market, Julio continues to enjoy the support of his wife. They have no children. His big goal in life is to continue growing his business so he can offer his family a better life.
