A loan of $1,125 helped to buy supplies for food preparation, such as rice and meat oil.


Samuel's story

Samuel, a restaurant owner, previously received a Kiva loan which he used to purchase kitchenware, tables and chairs, expanding the possibility that new customers might come to his establishment, and this is exactly what happened.

Today he is very happy and for this reason he is applying for a new Kiva loan. With the new loan he will buy supplies for food preparation, such as rice and meat oil. With this purchase he hopes to gain discounts for purchasing in cash and in greater volume, thereby reducing his costs and increasing his profits - a direct result of your investment in Kiva.

Since receiving his Kiva loan he has had a greater influx of customers and he has improved his family income. He says to his Kiva lenders, "Thank you for permitting me to improve my business."
