Lester Margoth's story

This Lester, she is a single, 29 year old woman who make artisan hats and bags out of wicker and caña flecha. She lives in the town of Sincelejo, a post conflict zone where there are high rates of poverty and a lack of work opportunities. But as an artisan and independent merchant, she strives day to day to get ahead and improve her living conditions.

Lester wants to turn to the Kiva community to ask for a loan. The reason is that Colombia is in the vacation season and there are a lot of tourists who seek her products. That is why she wants to increase production and take advantage of this high sales season.
