A loan of $1,000 helps to buy men's and women's shirts, pants, and blouses wholesale.

Martha Kenia's story

Martha, age 27, is known in her community for being a hard-working and responsible woman. She has been selling clothes for six years. She started the business by selling clothes by order to her neighbors and acquaintances in her community. Her strength for getting ahead day to day is her children.

Martha is requesting a Kiva loan together with MiCrédito in order to buy men's and women's shirts, pants, and blouses wholesale in order to have more inventory to offer her customers at a good price. In the future she wants to set up a small space at her house to establish her store. This way she would have a place where a lot of people will see her products, and she will have better earnings.
