A loan of $375 helped to buy supplies in order to expand his honey-producing business.

Manuel Jesus's story

Manuel is an enterprising young man. He is 19 years old, single and lives with his family in the Lambayeque department of Peru.

For over a year Manuel has had a business selling honey and carob beans. The business is going very well because Manuel is very hard-working and has a great desire to get ahead; Manuel is responsible and, above all, wants to support his family.

Manuel is grateful to Kiva lenders because, with their support, he will be able to expand his business by buying more supplies for producing honey and carob beans. With this loan, Manuel will earn a higher income in order to offer his family a higher quality of life.
