Cristina's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to buy winter clothes to sell to develop a sustainable business.


Cristina's story

Cristina thanks Kiva lenders for the previous loan, which helped her to buy winter clothes to sell. Due to this, Cristina was able to satisfy the demand of each customer and will have the possibility to develop her own sustainable business.

Cristina managed to create loyal customers by having a large assortment of clothes. This allows her to work at the same pace. In order not to lose customers she wants to refresh her merchandise with something new. Because winter is coming, she wants to buy shirts and coats.

Cristina decided to request a new Kiva loan to purchase the goods. As a result, she will be able to refresh her stock and will continue to develop her business.
