A loan of $2,500 helped to buy the raw materials for making trousers and shirts.

Bella Samaria's story

Bella is very happy and grateful to the COMIXMUL cooperative for providing her with support to invest in her business so she could meet her planned objectives for the Christmas season. This brought her and her family great satisfaction.

With her first loan she bought 60lb of t-shirt fabric, from which she made 1120 garments. She sold these at a very good price and managed to make 50% more profit than she had expected.

Because of this Bella was able to pay off her loan much earlier than planned and now she is approaching COMIXMUL again to ask for a second loan. She will use this to buy 51lb of white t-shirt fabric so she can make 1020 garments and 780 yards of gaberdine for trousers which will give her 580 pairs of trousers. This will enable her to satisfy the unmet demand at this time of the school year. She hopes to be helped again by the Kiva lenders.
