Flor
View original language description ↓

Flor R. owns a store where she sells traditional Mexican dresses. This is her only source of income being that she lives alone. She orders the dresses from areas south of Mexico City such as Chiapas, Puebla, Veracruz and Guadalajara, and some dresses she designs herself. She has been in this business for 8 years.

These dresses are used for fifteenth-birthday parties, festivals and traditional dances in the schools. Currently, she needs more merchandise because the Mexican Independence festivities are coming in September, and she has several orders placed but does not have enough merchandise.

Flor has received a loan from FVP and paid it punctually. She would like to count with Kiva’s support to purchase merchandise for her business.
