A loan helped to buy more used clothing to resell at her own shop to provide better income for her family.


Dircia's story

Dircia is a modest and enterprising nineteen-year-old who sells secondhand clothing. She has been in business for years now, so she has much knowledge and experience in the trade. Her business site is in a good spot in the local marketplace, as people are always around looking for secondhand clothing to buy. Running her business has made her become more independent because she can be responsible for herself. She can also contribute to supporting her family.

Dircia would like a loan of 400 USD through Kiva's field partner KIF to stock up on more second-hand clothing for her business. She hopes to run a bigger business in the future and wants to thank all her lenders for the opportunity.
