In 2005, Richard opened his shop, where he sells all kinds of paintings. He now needs a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to renew his tools and purchase the needed quantity of paintings for his shop. In that way, he will be able to respond rapidly to his customers’ demands and therefore earn higher returns. In the future, Richard plans to work as a wholesaler and sell paintings to neighboring shops.
