A loan helped to cover operating and payroll expenses for her new shop.

Caroline's story

Caroline is ready for her second Kiva loan to help Claytime Ceramics into its second location! When Caroline took over Claytime Ceramics 11 years ago, it was just a small ceramics studio offering patrons a creative space to make ceramics and other crafts. Since then, Caroline has grown her shop into a Pacific Beach staple, offering a variety of hands-on experiences, workshops and summer camps in ceramics painting, mosaic, pottery and clay modeling It has always been Caroline’s goal to expand her business to another location, and she recently had the opportunity to take over a small gift shop that she will now convert into a second ceramics studio modeled after the original. Her second Kiva loan will help with the operating expenses and payroll of Caroline’s second Claytime Ceramics and gifts store. She feels fortunate to have found such a reliable employee for her second location and believes that this employee is just the partner she needs to help this second location thrive. Caroline’s passion for art and ceramics is as strong as when she first took over this business and she continues to work hard to share this joy with others.
