Manuel's story

Thank you for supporting Manuel with his earlier Kiva loan for his food and general family products store. With his Kiva loan, he was able to supply her business and and generate better profit.

Since receiving his loan, Manuel has seen his business increase sales possibilities. He is aglow because of his great satisfaction. He says to his financiers: "Thank you for your confidence and for supporting us economically, to get ahead little by little."

Today, Manuel is applying again for a Kiva loan, which he will use to buy personal use products, items for the home and foods. He believes he must always be investing in his business for the rapid turnover of these products. This is what makes a Kiva loan a successful investment.
