A loan of $625 helped to buy helmets, vests, letters and reflectors, which are her best-selling items at the market.

Hermencia's story

Hermencia is applying for her second Kiva loan. The first she used to buy accessories for motorcyclists such as vests, reflectors, letters and decorations that sold quickly, and she made important profits that she reinvested and which helped greatly with her family expenses. With the second loan she will invest again in helmets, vests, letters and reflectors since those are the products that sell the fastest at her market. She sent the following message to Kiva: "Founding gentlemen, on behalf of my family I send cordial greetings of gratitude for all of the benefits we've received as a result of your loans. May God continue blessing you to be able to help and to make more families happy." If you want to know the story of Hermencia, follow the link:
