A loan of $1,400 helped to purchase supplies in bulk.

Gildardo De Jesus's story

With his previous Kiva loan, Gildardo increased his purchases of raw materials and a variety of supplies in numerous colors, such as leather, hardware and dyes. With this investment, he produced saddlery and leather goods that he sold, generating more income. He was very satisfied with this result, and now he is getting ready to apply for a new Kiva loan that he will use once again to buy raw materials on a cash basis so that he can develop new designs in leather and items such as wallets, purses and billfolds. With this Kiva loan, he hopes to see a good increase in his sales and gradually increase his profits over time. His message to the Kiva lenders is the following: "A very special thank you for the support I have received, with which my business has grown quite a lot."
