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

A loan helped to buy modern and cutting-edge clothing to attract more customers.

Ledis's story

Thank you for supporting Ledis, who, with her previous Kiva loan managed to buy more general merchandise, and in turn, improve payment deadlines for her customers. With her loan from Kiva, she can offer a more comfortable customer experience and increase her profits. Today, she works more comfortably and helps her customers to buy the products they can pay for in time frames that are convenient to them. Ledis would like to give a message to her Kiva funders: "Thank you for your help and I hope to receive your continued support". She is now applying for Kiva loan, with which she will buy modern and cutting-edge clothing to attract her customers and sell much more.
