A loan of $850 helped to buy wholesale medicine such as omega 3, weight loss products, natural shakes, shampoo for hair loss, cinnamon, etc.


Ivan's story

Iván, better known as "Doc" in his community, has a botanical products pharmacy in the neighborhood where he lives. He is a native of Estelí. He likes to do community work, because the story of his youth was sad. It took a lot for him to be able to achieve a university education, and that is why he helps at-risk youth. Iván tells us that the loan helped him a lot to move ahead because thanks to it he was able to buy more products and his business grew. He is asking for this new loan to buy wholesale medicine such as omega 3, weight loss products, natural shakes, shampoo for hair loss, cinnamon, etc. His goal in the future is for his pharmacy to keep growing. He is thinking of making improvements to his house to give his business more room. His next goal is to buy the products he needs in order to grow. He is very grateful to MiCrédito and Kiva for the help he has received.
