Shirley's story

Shirley is applying for her second Kiva loan that will be invested in ingredients to increase Arequipes [Colombian caramel candy] production. She used her previous Kiva loan to buy work tools and raw materials with which she attained a new increase in production.

Her message to lenders is the following: “I’m very grateful to you because thanks to the loans I’ve been able to move my business forward and little by little it’s going to become the business I hope to have. Please continue to support me.”
