Merly Xiomara's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to invest in a variety of merchandise and building materials in order to adapt an area in her home, where she can accommodate the neighbourhood children.


Merly Xiomara's story

Forty-six-year-old Merly is a resident of Carmen de Bolivar. She makes a living selling catalogue products and provides a homework service for the neighbourhood children.

She started this business in 2016 as an alternative for making money and to support her husband, who works as a driver for a public service company. She works in educational support during the afternoons and caters to an average of between 10 to 15 children. Her friend helps her with the group.

At the present time, she is applying for her first Kiva loan to invest in a variety of merchandise and building materials in order to adapt an area in her home, where she can accommodate the neighbourhood children.

This financing is very fitting to grow her business.
