Jairo's story

Jairo works every day brimming with good spirits and joy. He is a dynamic and determined man who works planting corn and beans. He also sells aluminum products and has a small store. He excels in each one of his businesses. He aspires to keep his customers happy in order to increase his earnings. He is 36 years old, married and he has three children. He started his business 13 years ago. He says that it was a challenge as he had little capital but he has achieved his objective, maintaining multiple jobs in order to provide his family with good health and quality education.

Jairo is requesting another loan in order to increase the production of his capital. He wants to invest as much in the store as in planting corn. He needs to buy basic grains, bread, soft drinks and cleaning products, as well as manure, fertilizers and seeds. He is very grateful for the first financing from Kiva through MiCrédito, with which he managed to grow his business. He says that without the support of his family it wouldn’t have been possible and they are who he fights for on a daily basis. He wants to provide them a prosperous future. His goal is to improve the conditions of his store and keep growing.
