A loan of $850 helped to buy household staples, especially fresh fruits and vegetables that are customary in the holiday season.


Roque De Jesus's story

Roque is very grateful for the continuous support he has received for his business. With his previous Kiva loan he bought tomatoes, potatoes, chilies, onions, broccoli, cauliflower, passion fruit and lulo [a tomato-like fruit], with which he increased his sales. He offers a wide variety of fresh fruits, vegetables and tubers to his distinguished customers.

Today he is applying for a new Kiva loan with which he will buy household staples, especially fresh fruits and vegetables that are customarily eaten by families to celebrate the holiday season. Roque must therefore rotate his inventory from what he must supply on a permanent basis.
