Marvin Manuel's story

Marvin is married and originally from León. He is the owner of a small tourist restaurant that is located along the beach. His first Kiva loan enabled him to stock up on supplies for the winter season such as seafood, sodas, and juices.


November and December are very good months for businesses since many tourists and their families come here to spend their vacations. Marvin needs to buy sodas, beverages for cocktails, beer, natural soft drinks, and plastic tables and chairs. For this reason, he is requesting a loan.


His goal is to improve the conditions in his restaurant. This will help him provide quality service to his customers so that they will want to return.
