A loan of $1,275 helped to stock his store.

Felipe's story

Felipe has had Kiva loans in the past, which have helped him to improve his business. He repaid them on time.

He is requesting a new loan in order to invest in merchandise for his grocery store, which he runs out of his home. His customers have requested that he offer a greater variety of brands.

Felipe also has an income from his work as a production supervisor in a factory. He uses this income to pay for the household expenses and his children’s education. He has two children who attend junior high school and two who attend elementary school.

The profits from the business will go toward repaying the loan. His wife helps him tend the store when he is at work.
