Santiago Noel's story

El Sauce is located 90 km from the administrative division of León. It is a nice town surrounded by beautiful nature, where the majority of clients make a living trading. It is characterized as a zone that is dedicated to municipal development, and there are other sources of income such as livestock and agriculture. Santiago was born and raised in this town with good customs and a love for work. Since when he was very young they taught him to survive on his own economic endeavors, such as his barbershop. He began his business four years ago, which consists of a small barbershop where services are offered to the residents of the area. Today he has his own clientele, but due to the needs of his business he is requesting a loan to purchase cement, sand, and to pay for labor to make improvements to the building where his business is located. He thanks Kiva and Ceprodel for the support with these small loans that help improve many businesses that need working capital to move forward and become stable in the market, and in the same way he is thankful for the attention that has been offered to him and for having gone to his home to offer him a loan.
