Mercedes Margarita's story

Mercedes is a young woman who is 24 years of age. Five years ago, she decided to start a business selling clothing and cosmetics. For her, her 2 children are her pillar for continuing to stay motivated every day.

Very grateful to be able to count on the support of her husband and her mom, with the small amount of money that she is able to earn in profits, she has been enlarging her business space.

Mercedes has opted for another loan from Kiva and MiCredito, to buy shorts, pants, shirts, and perfumes at wholesale, with the purpose of investing at lower cost by buying in large quantities, and thus earning a bit more profit.

In the near future, Mercedes thinks about having her own new clothing store with more varied merchandise at very affordable prices.
