A loan of $675 helped to buy imported fruit and cases of beer.

Alejandro Rafael's story

Alejandro received a Kiva loan in the past few months and bought fruit such as mangos, pears, mandarins, plums and grapes. With this purchase he increased his inventory and worked more comfortably, and with his earnings made some improvements to his home. His sales are now increasing and he has improved his quality of life. He says to his lenders: "I am very grateful to those who continue to provide support to grow our businesses." He is now so enthusiastic aout his business that he is applying for a new Kiva loan, with which he will buy imported fruit and cases of beer. He plans to take advantage of the carnival season that is approaching, by increasing his inventory, and selling the thing he likes most to those who are enjoying the season, which is one of the best-known celebrations of Caribbean culture in the world..
