A loan of $1,150 helped to purchase raw material inventory and ready-made shoes, as well as assorted merchandise.


Wilmer's story

Wilmer is requesting a new credikiva loan, which he will use to purchase raw material inventory and ready-made shoes, as well as assorted merchandise, since his wife and daughter market these products and get many orders.
He was very satisfied with his previous credikiva loan because he bought materials such as soles, paint, and glues, which helped him expand his shoe repair service. It also allowed him to invest in merchandise, which his family collaboratively sold. His message to his Kiva financial backers is the following: “Kiva has been of great assistance to me. I found support for my business there, and they offered me trust.”

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Mariana Sanchis
