A loan of $1,125 helped to buy materials for improving her workshop and supplies for making sandals, both for her sandal-making business.

Fanny Del Socorro's story

Fanny used her last Kiva loan to buy soles, glue, etc. so that she could meet the demand from her customers for the sandals that she makes. Now she wants to improve her workshop. She is applying to Kiva for a second loan that she will use to buy construction materials for the workshop plus the supplies she needs for making sandals. The improved space will allow her to more easiily fill new orders. Fanny says that "it's marvellous and I'm very grateful [for Kiva]. I hope to continue working with them to grow my business.".
