A loan of $10,000 helped to expand his business making mole and distributing his products in the United States.


Martin's story

In 2004, Martin started to make mole at home for family events. His mole recipe was well received by friends and family and Martin steadily came to the idea of branding his mole in order to sell it to the public. The idea of expanding was a great opportunity for Martin to sell his products to the U.S. market however, he did not have a stable job and he decided to take on the challenge of expanding and exporting the product on his own. The first step was to begin exporting by first obtaining the proper permits from the FDA. Ever since then, Martin has slowly been exporting products from Mexico to the U.S. The long-term objective is to progress into a successful commercial distribution center and increase its product depth and breadth.

This Kiva loan will allow Martin to expand his business and make his dreams of introducing quality mole to the U.S. market a reality.
