A loan of $1,025 helped to buy supplies, corn, and a computer.

Javier's story

It has gone very well for Javier in his business selling dough and cell-phone minutes. He received a previous Kiva loan with which he bought cell phones, sweets, and food, increasing his sales with his new equipment. He also managed to make new food sales, financing the loan portfolio among his customers.

Now he has more income and he has improved his quality of life because there are new earnings for his children. He says to his financial backers: "Thank you very much for the help. It's a good job that helps the most needy people."

Currently Javier's requesting a Kiva loan to buy a computer, more supplies for his food, and corn to make dough. The Carnival celebrations are approaching and the community of people who buy food usually grows during this period, which will make his Kiva loan successful.
