Petrona Del Carmen's story

Petrona is a hard-working and creative woman. She comes from a family of artisans and makes a living making and selling artesian shoes. Her specialty is sandals.

With this business, she has been able to help her family get ahead in life. She has used loans from Kiva and MiCrédito to benefit from a loan that has allowed her to purchase primary materials, such as soles, leather, paint, and shoe paste.

Her goal in the future is to be able to purchase a machine that sews shoes.
