A loan of $500 helped to purchase TV remote controls, batteries, cables, eyeglasses, etc.

Salvador Emilio's story

Padlocks hung in order of size, different brands of TV remote controls wrapped in red and green packaging, different types of light bulbs, and other products festoon Salvador's hardware store. Salvador is a 61-year-old businessman who has stayed on the cutting edge of household products, thanks to an earlier loan from Kiva partner MiCredito. With the earlier loan, he purchased eyeglasses, buckles, screwdrivers, belts, etc. to improve his business.

He is the father of three children whom he takes care of with his wife and who always help him with the family business. Salvador has a secondary school education. He has been a businessman for 18 years and has an entrepreneurial spirit that has taken him far. Nevertheless, he thinks that the time has come to invest in his business, which is why he is requesting a loan to purchase merchandise: TV remote controls, batteries, cables, eyeglasses, etc. This will allow him to grow his inventory to continue offering the best products and meeting the needs of his customers. His goal is to continue working hard and providing the best service.
