A loan of $625 helped to buy fabric.

Candido Humberto's story

Cándido is always working, making mattresses, and has been keeping his business going with the help of loans through AFODENIC and using the money to buy supplies. This is why he is requesting another loan through AFRODEC and Kiva. He is very grateful and will use the money to buy four bolts of printed and solid fabric. This small investment will allow him to keep selling so that he can help his two children continue studying. He wants to take advantage of being healthy and will continue supporting them, as the single father he is, until they are on their own and can support themselves. His greatest dream is to expand his workshop so that he can have more merchandise in the market. Cándido is a manager at another company, but his mattress job is more profitable and benefits his family better.
