A loan of $1,150 helped to buy construction materials and to make renovations in addition to buying cellular phones.


Manuel Antonio's story

Manuel also rents out apartments and commercial spaces and offers cellular phone service. Manuel has received 3 loans from the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, with which he has been able to grow his business in working capital and also his business of selling cell phone minutes, at 3 different points of sale.

His desire for prosperity does not let up, which is why he is turning to his Kiva loan to buy construction materials and to make renovations, in addition to buying cell phones, with an eye to increasing service. With another Kiva loan, he increases his possibilities of growth and renovations, offering his tenants a better impression of the quality of services that he offers. This is precisely the success of his investment.
