Willinton's story

Wilinton is 28 years old. He works making pizzas and juices. He has six years experience. He learned when he worked for the owner of the same business, which was sold to him by its owner, upon seeing Willington’s sense of duty. Today he has started his own household and he has a three year old son and has managed to sustain his micro-enterprise with a lot of hard work. He is dedicated. He has a stand where customers visit. He buys supplies daily in order to make pizza and natural juices, which pleases his customers. Currently he is asking for a Kiva loan, his first financing being made through Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, in order to buy salsas, meat, and a cart to transport tortillas. His main clients are neighbors, many of who come from his hometown and are faithful to him, as he works energetically in order to successfully influence them. His goal for the future is to buy his own house, maintaining income that is adequate in order to achieve his goals, and by doing this to grow more and more.
