Mauricio's story

We traveled from very early to meet Mauricio at his business, when we arrived, he has nothing on as he told us he was running late. Mauricio is a very happy you man, who above all else is a hard worker. He tells us that he is 35 years old and for now is living with his partner Jazmín. He also has three children depending on him.

Mauricio told us, "I have been selling American Clothing for the past 15 years, but I also attend to my shoe business, that I started because my father taught me since he was also devoted to business. Therefore, he helped me by giving me a location and some merchandise to be able to start my own shoe store. However, my one difficulty is my lack of financing, which is why I am applying for a loan from this institution to be able to purchase more packs of American clothing. I really enjoy my business because it pleases me to see how my clients return because they were so well taken care of. Although I have two employees working at the shoe store, I ask them to please treat the customers well so they will happily return to the store. My goal is to grow my business so that I can give my children an education and so they can have a better quality of life."

Mauricio is very grateful to the institution and to KIVA for the loan granted. With the credit he will be able to purchase what he needs.
