A loan of $1,675 helped to purchase beer in cash from a wholesaler. He will also buy accessories and replacement parts as well as pre-paid mobile phone minutes.


Julio's story

Thank you for supporting Julio, who quickly sold the replacement parts and cold drinks that he bought with his previous loan. With that loan, he benefitted because he had a greater selection, he earned ready cash, and he increased his sales and profits. Since receiving that financing, he improved his income for his business and for his family because he built up his working capital.

Currently, he is applying for another Kiva loan, which he will use to buy beer in cash at a wholesaler. He will invest well by taking advantage of the greater consumption that occurs during the Christmas and New Year holidays. He will also buy accessories and replacement parts as well as prepaid minutes for mobile phones to make his investment a complete success.

To his lenders, Julio says, "Thank you very much for the economic support. Little by little, I have progressed with Kiva and Fundación Mario Santo Domingo."
