A loan of $525 helped purchase raw materials and ingredients to make cheese.


Reynaldo Evaristo's story

Reynaldo Z. is a gentleman who for more than 15 years has made a living making cheese in the Nagarote area of León. His business allows him to take care of his household as well as provide for his young children's education. It's for this reason he has decided to improve his business so he can produce larger quantities of cheese to sell out of his home. With this goal he has turned to Kiva partner Ceprodel to request a loan that will allow him to purchase raw materials and ingredients, like milk, to process and make cheese to sell.
