Jose Guadalupe's story

José, who lives in the city of Granada, is father of twins and a salesman in his grocery store business. He's a client of Kiva and feels very grateful for his first loan. He invested it in firewood, rice, sugar, bread, coffee and basic grains, and was able to grow his business and increase sales thanks to this financing. This is why he is now requesting a second loan to continue investing in the same type of products, such as rice, sugar, cosmetics and basic grains. One of his goals is to repay the loan so as to be able to request a new one and continue growing as a businessman.
