A loan of $650 helped to purchase one washing machine.

Orlando Enrique's story

Thanks to his first Kiva loan, Orlando purchased four washing machines. Now he is offering more timely and effective service, which makes him very happy. At the moment, he is applying for a new loan to buy one more washing machine. Demand has increased and sometimes his customers leave his business because they cannot access service when all of his machines are being used. The reason why is Kiva loan was successful is because he used it to invest in machinery, thus allowing him to satisfy the unmet demand in the marketplace.

Orlando is well-known and plans to move forward with each opportunity. His message to the Kiva lenders is as follows: "Thank you for the previous loan. I hope that you will continue to support my business so that it become more profitable in order for me to continue growing and moving ahead with my family."
