A loan of $500 helped to purchase wood wholesale.

Mario Jose's story

Don Mario is an unassuming businessman. He is 50 years old and a carpenter. His first KIVA loan helped him greatly because it arrived when he most needed it. It enabled him to invest more in his business by buying varnish, paint, sandpaper, and adhesive material. Now he needs his second funding in order to buy wood wholesale so that he can make furniture, such as chairs, tables and wardrobes, and diversify his business even more.

One of his future plans is to expand his shop so that he can provide better service to his customers.
