A loan of $850 helped to buy stock such as clothing, footwear, glasses etc.


Rogelio Antonio's story

With his last Kiva loan, Rogelio bought goods such as flip-flops, sunglasses, men’s and women’s underwear, fabric, thread, sandals etc. which he sold to his customers and increased his profit margin. Now he is seeking a second loan to buy stock in large quantities so he has a wide range of items to offer at good prices. Rogelio has worked very hard to grow his business in his efforts to achieve a decent life for himself and his family. He is very pleased with the loan system and wishes to send the following message to Kiva donors: “Keep on helping with this wonderful cause which is very important for small businesspeople who are working towards the goal of growing their businesses.”
