A loan of $800 helped purchase bundles of second-hand clothing.


Bertila De Jesus's story

Bertila de Jesús C. is 49 years old, married, has five children, and lives with them and her husband in the Areas Verdes neighborhood in the municipality of La Unión, Olancho. For some time, in a part of her home, Bertila has had a second-hand clothing store for men, women, and children. She is a hardworking person who, day by day, through sales, provides for her home. She is well-known by her neighbors and customers in the neighborhood, and she also has many good references. Bertila is requesting this loan to buy a bundle of pajamas, two bundles of children's clothes, and two bundles of mixed clothes. With the help of this loan, she hopes to stock her business more so her sales will be greater as well as her profits, although on occasion sales dip due to a bad situation in the economy. Her dream is to have a bigger business and for her quality of life to improve. This is her third loan with Kiva partner FAMA, and she is very punctual in her payments.
