A loan of $1,300 helps to buy bales of used clothing.


José María's story

The need to earn an income and improve the family lifestyle led José to create his own source of income. For three years, he has been selling used clothing in a small space in his home. In his valuable economic activity, he has the mutual support of his wife and the essential motivation of his two young children.


José, 34, has opted for KIVA loans with MiCrédito to buy bales of used clothing. José, in the near future, has the great challenge of transforming his establishment into a new clothing store for men and women.
