A loan of $1,425 helped to buy meat.


Luis Enrique's story

Luis used his previous Kiva loan to buy machinery for cutting bones. He bought meat in quantity and sold much more. He was also able to repair his business’ roof. He is very happy about the Christmas and New Year’s seasons and he hopes to be able to offer his customers more products, since their consumption increases during this time.

This is the reason he is requesting a Kiva loan, which he will use to buy beef, ram, and pork. His number of customers has increased and he has new buyers outside of Malambo, where he lives and has his business. His message to the Kiva lenders is, “I am grateful for the support you have given me and my family through these loans. Thanks to you, my business has improved a lot and I hope to have your continued support.”
