A loan of $575 helped to buy meat and soft-drinks.


Julio Alberto's story

Julio, 23, lives in San Jacinto and has been a merchant since he stopped being an employee in a firm; he used his severance pay to buy products like cold-cuts and soft-drinks to sell them in a domestic market located near him. With this activity he’s earned income to cover personal expenses and to be able to study computer sciences part-time. His goal for later on is to have an equipped warehouse to become a distributor of cold products buying in large volume and to finish his professional career. Currently, he’s applying for a Kiva loan because his market requires more meat products and soft-drinks and with it he’ll increase sales and gradually escalate his growth and mainly reach his goals.
