A loan of $550 helped to buy wholesale supplies.

Willman's story

Wilman, 43, lives in the city of Sabanalarga, where the locals say “La Inteligencia Es Peste” (Intelligence is blight). For 15 years, Wilman has made and sold corn rolls here, a skill he learned from his father who made his living this way as well. Later Wilman went to work for himself to earn income. He sells for cash and on credit to local merchants. He wants to grow his business but lacks the capital to achieve his goal. He is applying for a Kiva loan to buy wholesale supplies that will reduce his costs, make him more competitive, and make his investment successful.
