A loan helped to buy seasonal clothing for women, specifically, blouses and jeans.


Katerine Paola's story

Katherine, who is 34 years old, is a micro-entrepreneur who sells women's clothing, costume jewelry, and beauty products. She is married and has two children, ages 17 and 10. Her husband is a refrigeration technician who specializes in repairing air conditioners.

She has eight years of experience with her store, and she has excellent monthly sales. Katherine is very creative and receives additional income by offering decorating services and working as a waitress in an event hall.

She now needs economic support to buy seasonal women's clothing, specifically, blouses and jeans. With her Kiva loan, she hopes to have a better inventory and good sales.
