A loan of $875 helped to buy prepared meals, produce and meat.


Luis Alfonso's story

Luis bought produce wholesale with his previous Kiva loan and obtained special discounts. This was good for his business and was thanks to Kiva. Right now, he is applying for a new loan. With it, he will buy prepared meals, produce, and meat. This way, he will have a bigger selection for the busiest time of the year, the month of December. That is why his investment will be successful, and that is why he tells his Kiva investors: "Thank you, keep supporting the micro-businesses of Barranquilla, since we are meeting some goals that we had."
