A loan of $575 helped to buy cold cuts and meats, which he will use to increase his production of fried potato with sausage, hotdogs, skewered meats and hamburgers.


Porfirio Antonio's story

Porfirio used his prior Kiva loan to buy soft drinks and supplies to make his fast food, such as bread, meat, vegetables and sauces. He was particularly interested in obtaining supplies for the weekend festivities. The new Kiva loan he has applied for will be a cash fund to buy new supplies of meat and cold cuts, which he will use to increase his production of fried potato with sausage, hotdogs, skewered meats and hamburgers. This is because he is now located in a square which has been made available to vendors, who had previously been located in public spaces.

Porfirio is very happy and thankful to Kiva lenders, and hopes to continue receiving this financial support so that he can move forward professionally and with his family.
