A loan of $400 helped to buy pork and mutton in greater volume.

Deyner's story

Deyner lives in a municipality of the metropolitan area of Barranquilla. He has been selling pork and mutton for the past year. His uncle suggested this business in which he must travel to a nearby city and transport it to the municipality of Soledad for distribution to the public. He was able to sell at good prices which allowed him to continue in the market. He sells once a week on credit, in this way managing the frequency of his purchases, which are in cash.

His goal is to increase his working capital, sell more and more and eventually buy his own home. His biggest challenge is to continue selling at good prices. For this reason he has requested a loan from Kiva, which is his first loan he has made through la Fundación Mario Santo Domingo. Deyner will use it to buy pork and mutton in greater volume, aiming to get much better prices which would make this investment successful.
