Cleotilde's story

Cleotilde invested her Kiva loan in two parts. On the one hand she bought raw materials she used to make tote bags and on the other hand invested in her crops. Her goal is to continue adding more technology to her infrastructure and to have industrial machinery and to install a tank to store and supply her with water. Her message to Kiva lenders is one of gratitude and she asks that as the years go by that the loan amounts be increased in order to increase the size of financed businesses when they are repaid well. Currently, Cleotilde is applying for a new Kiva loan to buy raw materials and supplies to manufacture new backpacks she has on order and that undoubtedly will be very well designed to impact her clientele.
