A loan of $650 helped to buy flowers such as roses, carnations, pom poms, daisies, greenery, floral foam, and artificial flowers.

Juan's story

Juan bought beautiful natural flowers with his last Kiva loan. As a result he increased his sales a lot, and also bought vases in a larger quantity than usual with which he made beautiful flower arrangements. Now he is applying for a new Kiva loan that he will use to buy flowers such as: roses, carnations, pom poms, daisies, greenery and flower foam. He will also increase his inventory of artificial flowers, because there is a strong seasonal demand for these toward the end of the year, as Christmas flower arrangements are gifts that many families give each other to show their affection and celebrate the unity of the house of God.

His message to the Kiva lenders is the following: "It is important for us to be able to rely on the institutions that support small businesses. Thank you for the new opportunity that you are giving me to strengthen my business."
