A loan of $1,000 helped to buy merchandise.


Felisa's story

Felisa is a single mother who has a grown daughter. She has 23 years of experience selling clothing. She started out selling through a very small post at the door of what is now her home. Then, upon becoming a single mother, she needed to generate income and she didn't have any means to do so. One of her neighbors gave her the opportunity to sell clothing. She accumulated capital, and gradually bought merchandise. Now she has a store where she offers her products. It was there that she came up with the idea of this business. Now she wants to open another clothing store where her daughter will be in charge of sales. With the money from this loan, she will buy merchandise to open a new store. She is very grateful to Empreder and Kiva for the confidence provided in granting this loan.
