A loan helped to buy winter clothes to sell.


Cristina's story

Cristina thanks Kiva lenders for the previous loan, which has helped her to buy a new location in an open air market where she can sell her clothes. Due to this, she was able to expand her business and today she has two commercial locations in a local market. She has worked for about 20 years and has a lot of pleased customers.

The cold season is coming and Cristina wants to diversify the assortment of goods through purchasing jackets and overcoats. But not having enough money, she decided to take a new loan from Kiva. As a result she will be able to satisfy the demand of each customer and will have the possibility to develop her own sustainable business.


This loan is special because:

It enables those living in rural areas to grow their businesses at a lower interest rate.
