A loan helped to buy sandals and summer flip-flops.


Helen Patricia's story

The best options in footwear for ladies, gentlemen, and children are found in Doña Helen's shop, located in one of the markets of the capital. All her customers visit her because of the quality of the long-lasting products that she has been offering for some years. Her principal motivation is her children, since they are present in every goal that is proposed.

With her first financing, she was able to purchase sports shoes for women and men wholesale in order to obtain better earnings.

In order to continue growing in her business, she is applying for a loan from MiCrédito, along with support from Kiva, in order to be able to buy sandals and summer flip-flops.

In the not-too-distant future, she wants to invest more and more in order to position her shop as the most complete of all the markets in her community.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Pam McMurry.
