Vilma has been selling clothes for 20 years. She began with very little merchandise that she sold door-to-door. When she had capital and with the help of a loan, she was able to lease a store to place her clothing shop.

So, she is asking for a Kiva loan with which she will acquire: jeans, sweaters, leg warmers, blouses, and more. In this way she will be able to have a variety of clothes to offer, and be able to obtain good profitability to pay for university for her two oldest children.
