A loan of $625 helped to buy stock merchandise for his store.


José Del Carmen's story

José has a store and by means of it he’s gotten two loans from Fundación Mario Santo Domingo that he’s used to increase working capital to stock the store and be able to win over more customers. Since he started receiving the loans he’s had an excellent variety of stock. His accounts have increased and his quality of life has improved because his income is higher. José is very grateful because his store has more stock, his clients are more numerous and that’s very good for his income.

He’s currently applying for a Kiva loan to buy merchandise like foodstuffs, packaged snacks and soft-drinks in larger amounts to stock his store because there are products that have rotated out and he doesn’t have them. Having all the products on hand will increase ales which will make his Kiva loan a very successful investment.
