A loan of $1,250 helped to buy sacks of spices like pepper and cumin in order to open a shop.

Mirardo's story

For his second loan through Kiva, Mirardo is carrying on with the same job of selling condiments such as pepper and cumin.

His previous loan went well, as he bought an industrial grinder and expanded his income. This time he is asking for a loan to buy wholesale condiments as he will soon open a shop, and he needs to stock it with products. He feels happy and grateful for the opportunity they are giving to him to expand his business and improve his quality of life, as this is the only job that lets him support himself.
