Crisóstomo's story

Crisóstomo is once again requesting a loan to invest in merchandise because he doesn't have enough products on sale. He wants to have a greater variety, such as fruit, vegetables, cold meats, and dairy products. This business is his source of income for his family. He has two children who are in college. It's very important for him that they finish their education so they have an enterprising future. Crisóstomo and his wife take care of the business and between them they've gotten ahead and worked very hard to give their children the best. He wants to invest in his business because his customers are requesting this type of merchandise. This way his business will have more earnings. Crisóstomo had had previous Kiva loans and he paid them back punctually.
