A loan of $1,075 helped to buy handicrafts.


Alvaro's story

Alvaro thanks Kiva for its financial support, which allowed his business to grow by 20%, and asks that the lenders continue to help him. With his Kiva loan, he increased his purchases of earrings, shirts, hats, shoes and other merchandise, allowing him to impress his customers and sell more. He is now applying for a loan to buy handmade items such as backpacks and fabrics other than those he currently stocks, which will significantly increase sales, income, and profits. He has regular customers and offers beautiful, quality merchandise at fair prices.
