Roiner's story

Roiner is very well-known by the inhabitants of his town of San Jacinto, in the Bolívar department. Since the age of nine years old, when his father died, he has worked as a shop assistant in various places. It was with this experience that Roiner was able to make his dream become a reality and he started his own business, selling meals, supplies, liquor, cold drinks, meat products and staple goods. He sells the products in proportions appropriate for locals to come in and buy on a daily basis. Roiner's business satisfies the needs of the neighbourhood and he is able to continue with his dreams of prospering further. In the future he hopes to set up shops in various districts around town and then distribute products to all his stores, and to other businesses. Roiner has very few resources to help him in his work. He has no working to capital so achieving his aims is difficult. Roiner is currently applying for a Kiva loan, his first with the "Fundación Mario Santo Domingo". He will use the loan to buy supplies, meals, drinks, meat products, dairy products, vegetables, and more. Roiner wants to use his experience and his youth to his advantage so that he can eventually improve his well-being.
