A loan of $1,750 helped to buy varied merchandise, to perform maintenance, and to repair the display cases.

Luis Daniel's story

Thank you for supporting Luis. With his previous Kiva loan he bought merchandise in response to his customers’ expectations and needs. With his loan he was able to leverage his business and increase his sales, profits, and working capital. He used this to reinvest, and he was able to improve his living conditions.

He traveled with his mother to another city, and he reunited with his family. His business has grown and is much stronger. That is why he sends the following message to his Kiva lenders, “It is with unending gratitude that I thank you for your work of supporting people like me with scarce resources. Thanks to the loans we are able to have to opportunity to progress”.

He is currently applying for a new Kiva loan. He will use the loan to buy varied merchandise. He will also perform maintenance and repair the display cases at his place of business in order to give it a better presentation. This way, his merchandise on display will be more appealing to his clientele. This is the factor that will make this investment successful.
