A loan helped her to buy clothes, purses and perfumes to increase her business's merchandise and improve her family's income.


Marilyn Gabriela's story

Marilyn together with her daughter have worked for 2 years selling clothes, shoes, purses and perfumes in their community. This business has helped her, as well as her daughter, to improve her family's income and offer them a better quality of life.
With the loan they want to buy merchandise at wholesale prices to sell in her town which is far away from the city, and this way to offer more variety and benefit her customers with better prices.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Patricia Mueller.


This loan is special because:

It impacts extremely marginalized people in Costa Rica.
