A loan helped to bring in a new supply of clothing for her retail business to create a better living for her two lovely daughters.

Margarita's story

Meet Margarita again. She is a single mother to two lovely daughters. She puts all of her efforts into creating a sustainable living for them. To support them, Margarita is involved in a clothing retail business, which is her main source of income. She also owns a farm of livestock like pigs and chickens.

With the previous loan provided through the generous help of the Kiva community, Margarita was able to develop her retail business. Seeing the positive results, Margarita decided to further expand her business. With this loan, she will bring in new autumn and winter clothing for retail purposes. She believes that this will help to attract more clients and increase her income. She is hoping to have the expected results so that she creates a better living for her two lovely daughters.
