A loan helped to buy silk thread of varying thickness, thimbles and supplies to weave hammocks.


Santos Sotera's story

Santos is requesting a new loan because she needs to inject working capital into her business. The funds provided will help her to buy silk thread of varying thickness, thimbles and supplies to weave hammocks.
Thanks to the previous loan, she was able to increase the inventory of her business, which was positive since she acquired what was necessary to continue working. Her family unit has not changed and her economic conditions have improved considerably.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Maria Martinez-Piszko.


This loan is special because:

It gives El Salvador's artists a chance to revive the local art of handcrafting.
