A loan of $225 helped to buy thread, leather, buckles, etc.

Francisco Ramon's story

Francisco is from the city of Estelí and he’s a merchant by profession. He’s been working making and selling leather goods for a long time. He’s grateful to Kiva and to MiCrédito because he’s already succeeded in making various products for his customers who accepted them because of their quality and good design.

He’s asking for this loan to buy thread, leather and buckles, among others, in order to fill customer orders. He figures that the loan will be of great help for him to get ahead since it’s a great opportunity for him to increase his inventory and his income.

He hopes to become well-known throughout the city by means of catalogs that feature his designs like leather purses. He considers himself to be a man with many hopes for improvement and who with God’s help and his family’s will continue moving forward.
