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

A loan helped to buy pants for women, men, and children.

Milagros De Jesus's story

For five years, Milagros has sold pants, shirts, and linens for women and men. Only 24 years old, she has created a small shop in her home through great effort. She has total support in this venture from her husband and her mother. She got into this business because she wanted to contribute income to her home since her husband's wasn't enough. Milagro has previous experience with Kiva and MiCredito where, through a loan, she bought shorts, socks, and camisoles in bulk.

She is very pleased to have achieved one of her dreams that way, and has returned to Kiva and MiCredito for financing to buy pants for women, men, and children. In the near future, Milagros plans to build her boutique and have a variety of merchandise.
