A loan of $1,000 helped to buy meat.


Anibal's story

Kiva client, Aníbal, 53, is from Estelí. He’s married and the father of seven children. He’s a merchant; he’s been selling meat for 21 years. His first loan was of great help to him because it allowed him to invest in expanding his business’ inventory; his sales increased which in turn generated more income. He used his first loan as working capital to buy meat which is a product in high demand. He wants to expand his business with high quality products which is why today he’s asking for a new loan to invest even more in his business buying meat to meet customer demand. His wife helps him tend to customers in his business and he feels that this new investment will be of help because he’ll be able to keep his business active and will be able to meet customer demand. He hopes that with Kiva’s help he will be able to continue in business, to earn more income and be able to offer his family a better economic standard.
