A loan helped to purchase bundles of men's, women's and children's undergarments.


Adda's story

Adda is a young, 25-year old entrepreneur. She studied toward a Business Administration degree, but has not been able to complete it because she has dedicated herself more to her work.

Adda has a small grocery and sells used clothing. She started working when she was very young. Right after finishing secondary school, she sold food, like sodas, enchiladas, tacos and fried plantains, at the local baseball and soccer fields. That awoke her interest in business and in studying for a business related degree. She later set up a small grocery, which allowed her to generate a profit that has been reinvested in her used-clothing business.

Adda's hopes are to expand her business and see it become more prosperous. She is requesting a loan from Fundenuse with Kiva funds so she can invest in her clothing business. She will purchase bundles of men's, women's and children's undergarments. The purchase will help her to increase her sales and thereby her profits as well.
