A loan of $1,000 helped buying inventory.


Cirilo's story

Mr. Cirilo has had a business selling tacos for over 6 years now. The location of his business is close to his house, outside of a school.


Mr. Cirilo is requesting a loan for $1,000.00 to buy more inventory for his business and in that way prepare different stews for his tacos and also have more variety of meals to sell. This will allow his business to grow more in sales, since it is the source of income to his family.


Cirilo has had loans with Fvp and with Kiva this would be his second loan.
