Eduardo Rafael's story

Eduardo is a cobbler and it is going well and this is thanks to his Kiva credit, combined with his capacity for work. Upon accessing a loan he invested it in the purchase of materials like leather, soles and other materials. He was able to get discounts and fabricate new designs that were sold very quickly. The increase in his production helps improve his life and the dreams of his family. These improvements are reflected in the well-being of his family. He says to his financiers (Kiva lenders) that they should continue to help the small Colombian micro-businesses, so that they can meet their goals. That is what Eduardo is grateful for. Currently he is applying for a new Kiva loan with which he will purchase a display case in order to show off his new December designs, as well as to purchase material like leather, vinyl, glue, etc. The quality with which he makes the shoes, which changes according to the season, is what makes the investment of Kiva credit so successful for Eduardo's shop. Eduardo has plans for great success for him and his family and the loan will allow him and his family to have a happy Christmas season and to make many goals so that his 2013 new year will be prosperous.
