Cristina is in retail because she has always had a penchant for it and because she does not like to rely 100% on her husband’s income. Furthermore, she wanted to help him out with the family expenses. For this reason, she sells American clothing.

She needs a loan of $500.00 USD, which she will repay in 6 months, in order to purchase clothing in bulk. With your support, she will be able to achieve her goal.

Translated from Spanish by Elizabeth Casian, Kiva Volunteer.

Cristina se dedica a las ventas ya que siempre le han llamado la atención y no le gusta depender 100 % del sueldo de su esposo, además de querer ayudarlo con el gasto familiar. Es por eso que se dedica a la venta de ropa americana.

Ella necesita un préstamo por US $500 que pagara en 6 meses para comprar unas pacas de ropa. Con tu apoyo podrá lograrlo.
