A loan of $625 helped purchase prime materials and wholesale supplies of corn, rice, potatoes, oil, etc.


Eric's story

Thank you for helping Eric, who used his Kiva credit to purchase corn, potatoes, flour, rice, and cookware like pots and spoons, all of which he used to respond to seasonal sales that presented themselves. Being able to have everything already ready to meet demand, he was able to increase his earnings because he was able to offer special prices and he acquired supplies he was not used to purchasing. Eric says to his financiers "Thank you for the support you have given me in the form of this credit" it has allowed him to strengthen his business. He is currently applying for a new credit with Kiva that he will use to purchase prime materials as well as wholesale supplies of corn, rice, potato, oils, etc. With this credit, he hopes to increase his earnings because he will be able to produce his product at a lower cost, this will be an example of how successful his Kiva credit will be.
