A loan of $1,100 helped to buy items for the home such as small appliances that are customary gifts for Mother’s Day.


Rogelio Antonio's story

Rogelio operates a store for which he previously received a Kiva loan. He used that loan to buy flip-flops, cutlery sets, shirts, glasses, umbrellas and underwear. All of these items had been previously ordered by his customers, so he sold them very quickly. Rogelio’s previous loan helped him grow his business so that he can now better manage his inventory, respond more appropriately to his customers and increase his sales volume. He is also now able to buy inventory at good prices when opportunities arise – all, he says, thanks to Kiva. Rogelio is now requesting a Kiva loan to buy items for the home such as small appliances that are customary gifts for Mother’s Day, which is his busiest time during the first half of the year. Rogelio sends this message to Kiva lenders: “Your support is very important because with it I have been able to grow my business.”
