Reyna Isabel is 22 years old and has one child. She makes “guipiles” (colorful, handwoven garments) and she sells cosmetics. She has been in business for the past three years. She has already received one loan. It helped her a lot as it provided her with working capital. Now she is asking for another loan as she needs a little more merchandise. She needs to buy the necessary supplies in order to make “guipiles” and she will buy cosmetics which she will sell. She is thankful for KIVA, as they have helped her a lot with her business.
