A loan of $750 helped to buy books, prints, notebooks, and religious posters.

Haydee Del Socorro's story

Doña Haydee, age 58, is from Leon. She is happy and very grateful. She is grateful to the Kiva lenders for supporting her business selling books and religious material. This business has been very successful. She is now requesting a third loan to buy books, posters, notebooks, and coffee cups with images of the Virgin; December is coming up. In December, they sell pictures and images of the Virgin because it is the month of celebration of the Purísima, a religious tradition belonging to the city of Leon. Her customers make a lot of orders, and she doesn't want to lose this opportunity to get her products out there and move ahead with her business.
