A loan of $625 helped to buy adhesives, soles, and other supplies..


Dewis Enrique's story

Dewis bought a new shoeshine box to help improve his shoe repair business. He also bought supplies, such as soles and adhesives. Dewis also started another business by purchasing new thermoses for selling delicious Colombian coffee.

At the moment, he is applying for a new Kiva loan so that he can buy adhesives, soles, and other supplies in order to expand his business a little bit more. His message to Kiva lenders is one of appreciation because they have given him the opportunity to access credit, which he never had before. Dewis says, “The truth is that it has helped me a great deal.”
