Ofelia's story

Ofelia owns a graphic design business, located in Vista, CA. Her main service offerings include printing, signage and the production of promotional items. “In 2002, I wanted to create a job for my husband, Alan, as he is very sick and had been laid off from his job,” stated Ofelia. “He is a graphic designer and we started this business very close to where we lived, so that Alan could get to-and-from work.” A mother of three, Ofelia is very determined and hardworking. Their business has experienced difficulties because of Alan's health issues and the loss of their domain name. The business has been in the same location for almost 15 years and is very well-known in the community. They have recovered the domain name and have designed a new website. They are ready to launch, but they need to update the equipment in their shop, in order to keep up with their clients' demands. “We will be successful if our clients are successful,” said Ofelia. “We need this loan, in order to stay in business, so we are very grateful to Kiva lenders for helping us get out of a tough spot.”
