A loan helped a member to purchase mixed packages of clothing, shirts, pants, leggings, and skirts.


Estrella Del Mar Group's story

The solidarity group Estrella del Mar is made up of four members who want to better invest in their businesses to offer their customers a variety of products.

Karla is the coordinator. She is married and has had a used clothing store for 7 years. Her husband helps her economically and does the shopping.

She is requesting the loan from Kiva to purchase mixed packages of clothing, shirts, pants, leggings, skirts, dresses, towels, pillow cases, and bedsheets. Her goal is to purchase clothes racks and to continue expanding her business. With the profits from the previous loan she was able to purchase a display case.

The other members are Reina, 43 years old, who makes a living from new and used clothing, Gabriela, 28 years old, who makes a living from selling cosmetics and interior clothing, and Jennifer, 26 years old, who makes a living from selling new clothing.

In this group: Karla Vanessa, Jennifer Yasuhara, Gabriela Lourdes, Reina Isabel
