Eduardo Rafael's story

Eduardo has bought materials with which he has created new designs for sandals. His business has changed since he received his Kiva loan, because he was able to fulfill his obligations to all of his customers. His goal later on is to grow his business in order to provide employment to many who need it. He sends this message to Kiva lenders: "Thank you for the support received and for the work that you do worldwide". He is now planning a new Kiva loan, with which he will buy a shop window to exhibit his products, and also invest in materials to produce new designs for shoes for schoolchildren and women's models in general. With this help he feels that he will meet his goals and the dreams proposed by his family little by little and says: "Thank you, thank you very much".
