A loan of $350 helped to buy speakers for vehicles and electric wiring for radios.


José's story

With José's previous "CrediKiva" loan, he invested in fixing up his work space and buying certain tools, like testers and drills. His CrediKiva helped him a lot, because he improved the appearance of his business and the quality of his work thanks to his new tools, so his sales also increased. Since he received that loan, his family life improved because his income has increased and he is much more able to pay for family expenses. He sends this message to Kiva lenders: "I am very thankful because you allowed me to improve my working conditions with better infrastructure and better tools."

He is currently applying for another CrediKiva, which he will use to buy car speakers and electric wiring for standard radios. His investment will be successful because he has clients who demand those items.
