A loan helped a member to buy clothing to stock her business.


Las Mil Y Una Noche Group's story

Paola, age 30, is single and has 1 child. She works selling clothing, a business she started 5 years ago. A normal day for her is to wake up early in the morning, take care of her child, do the house chores, and then open her business to dedicate fully to the sell of her garments.

She invested her first Kiva loan in the purchase of a manikin for her products. With this second loan she will invest in more clothing to sell.

Her goals and aspirations with this loan is to increase her stock to offer a wider variety of garments to her customers, and thus expand her business.

Her goal in life is to support her child and have a financially stable life.
